‘wild self’ yoga quest preparations

2010 October 18

dear ‘wild self” yoga questers…

one week left before the ‘wild self’ yoga quest @ mount tamalpais … yoga, tribal vibrations, primal meditations, nature, quest, self-reflection, community, and no grid…. yummy… good times…

… so it is time to review a couple administrative questions…

where are we meeting and what time?

we are meeting at good earth grocery store at 1966 sir francis drake blvd,  fairfax, ca, 94930 at 7:15… if you are coming from san francisco, give yourself at least an hour for your commute…

what will we do at 7:15 am?

we will preview the day and go over basic outdoor safety issues…

what time are we leaving good earth grocery store?

7:30 am  sharp

we could have adventurous weather on saturday, no?

correct…  we are currently looking for a back up cave but this could prove difficult :) …  prepare for a mix of conditions… from sun to drizzle…

your clothing will be the most important shelter you have, so be smart… staying dry in nature is the difference between keeping it fun and, well, shivering… :) … couple things you can do to prepare yourself…

first, DON’T wear cotton (cotton kills)… it soaks moisture and doesn’t dry… given the conditions, we will want to keep moisture off our skin… wear some form of wicking wear as your base layer, and  then layers of clothing on top (thin wool layers work very well, plus they feel good)….

second, please bring rain gear, head to tow… if we do experience tears of joy from mother nature, we, for sure, want to receive her baptism with full and comfortable delight…

do you have a sketch of what the day will look like?

here is the prospective layout for the day (open to adjustment to account for changing weather)…

1:00 wilderness solo and self-reflective expressive art commences…

1:45 story circle and mirroring of quest (fancy way of saying ‘debriefing’ and ‘sense-making’)

2:30 allison hodge restorative yoga session

3:30 wrap up, hike back

4:00 transport our bodies into the profane… :)

my friend would like to come, is there room?

we have room for a few more… but giddy up since registration closes mid-week…

let us know if you have further questions… looking forward to the quest…

for the wild,

gino and allison…
