Moderate and Meditative Hike for Elul

Sunday, August 27, 2017 • 5 Elul 5777

8:00 AM - 2:00 PMGolden Gate Canyon State Park





Join leaders Ilana Fishman & Susan Kaplan for a moderate 4.5 mile hike along Burro Trail in beautiful Golden Gate Canyon State Park. This late summer hike will take you through rolling terrain and past an old homestead and a small pond.

Because we will also be doing mindful meditation as we enjoy the outdoors, this hike would be appropriate for adults or younger teens/tweens in fair shape or better. No "tigers", as we will take a more leisurely pace as we enjoy meditation stops with Susan. This hike is rated moderate-slightly difficult due to some inclines and an elevation of around 1,200 ft.

Our meditative hike will include pauses for silent reflection and contemplative questions. Taking in the spaciousness and beauty, we will explore the paradoxes of abundance & scarcity and individual & community. The Holidays are an opportunity to reflect on the narrow places that we have lived through this past year. Being among the trees will inspire us to “harvest” our strengths, celebrations and plant new seeds for the seasons to come. Based on Courage & Renewal practices and principles, you will find this reflective hike to be energizing and quieting at the same time!

Ilana Fishman, Hebrew tutor, B’nai Havurah Religious School teacher, and teacher at GALS (Girls Athletic Leadership School of Denver), is celebrating 40 years of living healthfully with Type 1 diabetes and has challenged herself and our B’nai Havurah community with a goal of reaching 400 miles of hiking and biking this summer. As of July 22, Ilana logged a total of 364 miles against her goal.

Susan Kaplan’s vision is to help repair our world by creating greater balance, harmony, and peace. She believes that there is a great need for a more peaceful, compassionate and just world today and for future generations. As a Trainer, Educator, Courage & Renewal Facilitator®, Peacemaker, Storyteller & Story Listener®, Accredited Facilitator for Rocky Mountain Center for Compassionate Communication and a Yoga Instructor, she provides a unique collection of services, programs, retreats and classes.
