Contemplative Walk and Guided Meditation 

Date: Saturday, June 16

Time: 7 AM – 8:15 AM

Contact: Darcy Kitching,

Start your morning off with a contemplative community walk. Join Boulder Walks and Naropa University for a morning contemplative practice of walking meditation, followed by a guided sitting meditation. We will walk from Boulder High School along the gorgeous Boulder Creek path to the peaceful seclusion of the Naropa University campus green. Upon our arrival, we will create a circle of intention before beginning our guided sitting meditation. We will end with a bow, and then enjoy tea and light refreshments before an informal social walk back to Boulder High School.

Start:  Boulder Creek Path at 17th Street (west side), next to Boulder High School

End:    Naropa University - 2130 Arapahoe Avenue (option to walk back to the starting point with the group at 8:15 am)
