Walk this way....

Venture Outdoors Tai Ji Players joined me May 1st for our first monthly Mindful walking practice with guided QiGong and Tai Ji . Can you glimpse the river on our right?

We had a wonderful time together in Riverview Park, Oakmont.

(See a related post from April "What Goes Around Comes Around:We are all Interconnected')

We had a delightfully diverse group for this first Venture Outdoors session. One young married couple in their 20's invited their mother-in-law -- a couple in their 60s joined us -- a serious runner interested in Chi Running and Chi Walking, two working women in midlife, my yoga and meditation buddy Gentleman Jerry (80+ years old) and last but not least, a Mom of three - who's husband arranged for her to attend - as part of his entire week-end birthday celebration package for her !!!

I had a lot of fun introducing one of my favorite Pittsburgh sites for walking and Tai Ji practice and we topped it off with a social walk along the beautifully landscaped walkway and some window-shopping up on Allegheny River Blvd, Oakmont.
I'm looking forward to our next offerring -- June 12th - same location -- each month. New-comers are welcome to join us -- and maybe we'll have some returnees developing their practice.

If you are elsewhere on the globe and are practicing mindful walking and/or Tai Ji out in nature -- I'd love to see your pictures and read about your experience -- do add your comments at the bottom of this entry!
