Adventure Mindful

Alongside our daily trail run adventures, we are creating an adventure programming path. We’ll infuse the same “Run Mindful” adventure energy into different outdoor activities each day so family/friends can join in the experience. For our first year at our 2024 Southern Oregon Retreat, this offering will mainly be hiking and enjoying beautiful nature locations in Southern Oregon.

Depending on the retreat location and participant interests, these adventures may include hiking, river/lake visits, stand up paddle board, quiet reflection time in nature, waterfall/beach visits, kayaking, biking and rafting.** The nature and adventure aspect of the retreat is meant to create a deep connection with nature as a resource and support, as well as getting to know yourself on a deeper level through discovering a new landscape of both your inner world and the outer world of the awe-inspiring places we adventure to in nature. (**Note: Some of the Adventure Mindful activities may be an optional add-on with an additional cost.)

Between “Run Mindful” and “Adventure Mindful” for adults, and “Adventure Mindful Kids Camp”, we are so excited to welcome families to our home and retreats for this heart-opening experience of community and adventure!

Run Mindful

The true essence of running is being in the present moment, connecting with your inner body and quieting the mind so you can let the run flow. Having a daily practice of meditation can transform not just your running but your life and lead to a deeper sense of joy and peace, greater awareness of your body and allow you to live each moment fully.

Run Mindful Retreats will not focus on how to run or topics like running form, performance nutrition, racing, increasing speed; those talks will happen organically but the emphasis will be on running / hiking in the present moment and bringing that serenity from the trails to everyday life. As a runner or hiker who spends time in nature, pushing your personal limits and feeling the connection to the earth and everything in it, you are already an experienced, mindful runner. Our retreats facilitate a deep understanding of the truth that is already in you. We want to bring your running mindfulness beyond the trails, into an intentional, conscious part of mindfulness in your daily life.

We will be doing an introductory exploration of mindfulness and include formats such as presentations, hands-on workshops, informal Q&As, personal self-reflection and guided meditation. Examples of topics include:

  • Accepting Pain and Transmuting it into Presence
  • Connection to Nature
  • Mindful Eating
  • Intro to Meditation
  • Running in the Now
  • Poor Trail Etiquette & how to transform it into Inner Peace
