Autumn Walk:
Finding Sabbath in Nature

Saturday, October 22
1 - 4pm

Join us, and communities around the world, for a special Green Sabbath Weekend walk. 


As daylight ebbs and temperatures cool, the natural world is preparing for its own upcoming time of rest and renewal. What does nature teach us about preparing for sabbath? What can we learn from the plants, critters and creatures in our own sacred landscapes about being present and open to the sabbath gifts of slowness, spaciousness, rest, renewal and restoration?


We are thrilled to offer 3 options for participating!

  • In-person, Washington, D.C. area

  • In-person, Los Angeles, CA area NEW!

  • Self-guided NEW!

Center guides will lead walks in the Washington, D.C., and the Los Angeles, California, areas. We will also be offering a copy of our walk agenda to those who would like to gather a group together and go on your own.

For Center-led events, spots are limited so sign up soon. We will follow all CDC recommendations for Covid-19 at the time of the walk. 

Note: As always, we don’t want to preclude anyone from participating due to cost. If you need a break on price, please email Susie at

I am constantly in a state of awe, wonder, doubt and unsure of how best to use this "one wild and precious life". Being involved with your efforts along with my contemplative pockets of time are the moments I feel I’m doing the right thing.
