Netwalking. What?! Integrating Woman Leaders sponsored an event at my home turf, Holliday Park. I was ready to represent and pay admission to support the cause. DnKpresents.com were our guides. We walked through the park and were reminded of how to disconnect with the modern world and use nature as a gift and retreat to be mindful of our lives. I learned about Jewelweed.
Jewelweed grows near poison ivy. Back the F up. Great fact I learned that day. Orange pretty flower? STAY AWAY! K was so gracious and knowledgeable about our surroundings. Loved seeing the appreciation she showed for life and land. What are you looking at?
As we walked DnK would ask us thought provoking questions and encourage us to pair up with peeps we didn’t know. I starred into a strangers eyes for 2 minutes while she just shared her life. So… so…. i don’t have the words. It was challenging yet amazing. There. I tried. We had an exercise in trust. Trust a complete stranger to help you walk backward across a bridge while you only look up at them. No looking down.
Happy to report no falls! We all passed! So, big question of the event… What does being mindful mean to you? I gave a few attendees this today.
I’m going to love this toy.
