Exploring the Possibility

Women walk better together!

Walking Partners. Step out. Experience the Moment. Exchange stories. Share knowledge. Connect on a genuine level. Walking sisters.

“The thought of being alone can be enough to keep some people from walking. The best way to solve this is by finding a friend to walk with. You can plan walking paths that are convenient for both of you, or map out routes that take you places you’ve never been before. It’s a great way to exercise and spend time with friends! There really are so many benefits for such a simple activity!”    American Heart Association

Taking a New Path

You’re out for a mosey around the neighborhood and decide to be adventurous by taking a new path. And look at the treasure booty you find at the end of the rainbow 🌈  Aargh, avass! ‍☠️ Adventurers gold. Ok, well, maybe not exactly gold, but it’s sure close (not to mention birds sure like it!).

Clever, treasure art, that you may never have discovered had you not decided to step out and make a change, trying something new.

Life awaits you on your next walk. Be sure to invite a walking bud to go along with you and dive into a new kind of conversation. Explore, matey…

With Time

You really meant to get to where you were going, fast. You had a goal and wanted to be “on time.”

But, when out of the corner of your eye, this perky, colorful, vibrant, gentle plant called your name, what could you do but listen! You wanted to be polite, after all. So you stop to say hello. To admire her a little. To tell her how beautiful she is and how much it means to you to have a moment with her.

Dear Nasturtium. You have slowed me on my very important mission and I feel SO much better because of it. Thank you, my beauty, for reminding me of the value of being with time, rather than in the frenzy of being on time. Nasturtium power ✨

Tiny Moments

Tiny moments.

One of the many beauties of walking, is receiving the gift of tiny moments. The ones you pass by without so much as a glance, every day.

Here’s this tiny moment when you find yourself eye to eye, beak to beak, with a mini being, who in another setting, would be totally annoying with its pesky buzzing. Yet here, now, on this quiet, foggy morning, you discover a shared existence with this itsy bitsy teensy weensy larger than life, earth partner. In this fraction of a moment, you get to glimpse the connection with all life.

All because you listened to the whispered call of the universe while out for a walk.

The Thing About Walking

Walking can get a bad rep. There seems to be this idea floating around that walking is just a means to an end; a way to get from point a to point b.  Well, of course it is, but in this hurried life, it might not feel fast enough because we want to get there – now. So, we end up hurrying from here to there, missing everything in between with the takeaway that walking is inconvenient because it’s just too slow.

Enter the real walking. The thing about. Walking. It’s the perfect opportunity to connect with yourself, connect with others, connect with nature. To get your muscles moving and your heart pumping.

When you step out for a walk with no end game, life feels different. No rush of time, no place to “get” to. You can be as slow (or as fast) as you want. It’s wonderful to take it easy and be open to moments that show up

Invite Exploration. Awaken Joy

“It has been three weeks now. Every day first thing, I throw on my clothes and get myself out the door to meet my friend for a 20-30 minute walk. I feel in doing so I have accomplished an important goal, so that anything else is a bonus. WomenWalking has been an important support for me in taking the hardest step, out my door.”  -Kama M., member

 

In the noise and busyness of today’s pace, there are times when you just need to take a break. Do it. Put on your shoes, sling wide the door, feel the light shine on your face and start walking. One foot in front of the other. One step at a time. Walk alone. Share it with a walking partner. Meet up with a group and walk. Be kind

Be Bold. Be Brave.

Step out of the history that is holding you back. Step into the new story you are willing to create.
-Oprah Winfrey

Do you ever find yourself overwhelmed by the noise of life and wonder just how things got so crazy so fast? It might start as simply as the morning alarm going off, or the way people drive, or feeling confused by someone saying one thing, but feeling the vibe that they actually mean something different, or anything connected with technology.

It’s easy to get disconnected from yourself and doubt what you think and feel, navigating life in a world of energies that cause distractions. When you find yourself down that rabbit hole of confusion, doubt and anger,

Staying True to Your Intentions

How do you stay true to your intentions, your vision and your feminine self, as you navigate your path, build genuine partnership and create balance within the world of life and work?

Walking and nature will support you in unearthing and igniting a deeper sense of passion, clarity and connection with who you are in the world.

Walking is a guide to re-imagining your path while uniting with self, nature, joy and the other women in your life and those who accompany you on walks. Immersing into the collective wisdom of women, you can explore a bigger version of the extraordinary you.

Cherish the Moments of Grace

December. A time and place that felt so away and yet seemed to arrive in a flash.
December. This last precious month of 2018.

Pause in the moment. Feel the poetry in the movement as you walk.  Discover the grace that infuses your life.  Dive deep into yourself and revel in the who in you, the magnificent, wonderful, uniquely beautiful you.

Pause as you take time to notice the small stuff:

The color and texture of the sky, whether it’s that brilliant blue that takes your breath away or it’s that turbulent gray, so frenzied and full of clouds, it’s about to explode with rain.

Walking the Friendship Path

Have you ever heard of the Friendship Bench?

The Friendship Bench is a big beautiful idea created by a small girl that has become a reality. Acacia Woodley thought of the Friendship Bench as a special place on a school playground where a child can go when they want to feel safe and to have someone to talk to. For more on Acacia…

Acacia goes and speaks at schools about the Friendship Bench and when she spoke at one school, the principal went over to her and “stood there for a moment to gather himself before he said ‘I finally get it, for so many years I have
