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.
