Contemplative Day-Hike

The second Sunday of the month (normally), meeting at 9am

Each month, we connect with the sacred in the forest, on the mountain, at the water--after all, God is in all places already. 

We walk, we talk, we also walk without talking. And we sit. In silence. And we are grounded.

Would you come with us?

The Route

Description: "Discover this 3.7-km out-and-back trail near Saanich, British Columbia. Generally considered a moderately challenging route, it takes an average of 1 h 11 min to complete. This is a popular trail for birding, hiking, and trail running, but you can still enjoy some solitude during quieter times of day. Dogs are welcome and may be off-leash in some areas."
