Meditation teacher and author Kurt Hoelting and writing teacher and poet Holly Hughes return to the North Cascades Environmental Learning Center to share mindfulness practices to help you re-connect with both your inner and outer landscapes.
Starting each day with sitting meditation, we’ll share poems and nature essays by well-known poets and writers, then explore putting our own thoughts into words. Outdoors, we’ll enjoy walking meditation, hiking and observations with Institute naturalists to deepen our connection with the natural world. In between, we’ll practice Qi gong movement and yoga stretches. No meditation or writing experience necessary. Tuition includes comfortable lodging and delicious, organic meals.
Kurt Hoelting is the author of The Circumference of Home: One Man’s Yearlong Quest for a Radically Local Life. Holly Hughes is author of Sailing by Ravens, co-author (with Brenda Miller) of The Pen & the Bell: Mindful Writing in a Busy World and editor of Beyond Forgetting: Poetry and Prose about Alzheimer’s Disease.
