About the trip

Go outward and turn inward

The fast pace of life can sometimes makes us feel disconnected from nature and deny ourselves much needed time to refresh. Nature meditation has the potential to introduce calm and focus into lives that are sometimes run by stress and anxiety.

The backcountry is one of the best places to find peace, quiet, and calm. This weekend, we're taking full advantage of the stillness of the woods as we disconnect our phones and spend two days escaping the city to practice meditation in nature all while backpacking and camping away from it all.

Weather

Weather conditions can be quite different from the city in the mountainous regions we visit. Temperatures can be quite cooler as we head north or to higher elevations. Keep your eyes out for an email from our team a few days in advance of your trip. That email will provide updated weather conditions and will alert you to anything additional you should put in your pack to prepare. We head outside in any weather, as long as we know it's safe, and we don't let a little rain or wind ruin a chance for an adventure. You can contact us at [email protected] if you have any questions about preparing for trail conditions.

Backcountry Camping

We'll be camping out for one night near a backcountry shelter. We'll be sleeping in backpacking tents. Tents can be rented for $30/ea (rented tents are double-occupancy) or you can bring your own. Sleeping bag and sleeping pad rentals are also available. Food and communal gear will be carried up by the group, so be sure to leave space in your pack!
