In honor of this season of Thanksgiving, Cape Elizabeth United Methodist Church will host a Gratitude Walk in Robinson Woods on Saturday, November 20, 2021, from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. This walk is simply to be with others in a spirit of gratitude and be open to learning from the woods.
The walk will be Led by Linda Greer, Director of Marshwood and Kittery Adult and Community Education programs. She has a Masters in Adult Education from USM where she focused on Contemplative Practices for learning. As a member of the Maine Outdoor Adventure Club she is known for exploring a variety of slow paced walks and easy hikes. She brings inspiration from nature into her work, relationships and creative expression.
Participants will gather at 10:30 a.m. to meet fellow walkers, group by walking pace and desired distance, with the goal to finish the walk at the same time and reflect on the experience. Giving thanks with each step, in silence for the first 15 minutes, will be encouraged so walkers can experience the sounds of the forest and feel even deeper gratitude. There will be group closure to the walk, an opportunity to share in the beauty and peace of the season. Once registered, walkers will receive more information as to the meeting location.
