About the Event

Watching birds can lead to greater human satisfaction, happiness, and health. By being aware of birds, we can also grow our ability to focus and to   rest in the current moment, as well as grow our compassion and justice   centered behaviors to help care for ourselves, others, and the planet.   Birds, humans, and the earth are in trouble and with strong connections   to the living community around us, we can save ourselves and all life.

This  program aims to grow our ability to transform ourselves  and our world  by watching birds as an intentional mindfulness  practice. This is  enhanced by an emphasis on our relationships  and connections to the  humans who join us for the walk and the other  species with whom we will  interact.

Though led by renown avian conservationist, Rev. Dr. LoraKim Joyner, the   hope is that we build a just and compassionate community together made   up of those who respond to this form of mindfulness practice.

To  attend, please make reservations as we want to limit  group size due to  Covid-19 and to be able to interact with one another  and the birds.  Bring comfortable walking shoes, binoculars if  you have them, and water  and nourishment as needed.  Do not attend if  you are ill. We will be  observing social distancing.
