2023 — wait and hear group

Take off your shoes, stand barefoot on a rock, and attune to the place you are in to connect with the ground beneath your feet. Instead of hitting the ground running, you are invited to slow down and take a moment to breathe and connect to the place you are in.

Try to settle into a quite and relaxing rhythm of breathing and moving your body.
Stand barefoot for 5-10 minutes, breathing and moving your body.
