We are all born with some of the most integral tools needed in this world: our intuition, our breath, our selves.
But the world has its own ideas about what we need. It piles on expectation, pressure, stress. The world tells us that we need to question our intuition–– this can actually help us develop ideas and newer, bigger, and potentially better thoughts, but it can also lead to doubt. Sometimes, we end up feeling like we must be wrong, and not even just in thought, but in who we are. The world tells us that we need expensive equipment, and perfected skill sets–– without ever being a beginner, of course. It can feel like we don’t have enough, we can’t attain enough, and like we are not enough.
We are enough.
We have the tools we need.
What if, instead of taking on the burdens of the world, you were to remove the expectation, pressure, and stress, and listen to the voice beneath the noise?
Join Michelle Allen, MACP, on a beginner-friendly hike through the stunning Olympic National Park as you open your ears to your heart. You’ll begin with a centering meditation to let go of all that is not serving you so you can hear your truth clearly. On a silent hike into the forest, you’ll drop into that subconscious magic that’s been bubbling away below the surface, and after a short debrief, have the opportunity to share your newfound voice with another hiker. Together, you will create a supportive space to acknowledge the process and the divine power of listening to your heart so you can decipher what is serving you, and what is no longer needed.
- Including travel time, this is an all-day experience.
- We will gather at 8:30 at a designated location(s) to ride share to Staircase.
- Park access fees are covered (unless you choose to drive separately).
- This hike is open all levels of experience.
- The workshop (including the hike) itself will last approximately 4 hours, with snacks provided.
- Hikers are encouraged to bring a lunch, a bottle of water, and just a little bit of radical vulnerability.
- This workshop is limited to 12 participants.
Michelle Allen digs relationship: relationship with earth, self, others, and the infinite. She believes that strengthening these relationships is the Heartbeat of emotional and spiritual healing.
Michelle works within herself and with her clients in a high integrity, low pressure environment to explore, confront, contemplate, wrestle with, and celebrate the breathtaking (…and often maddening) nuances of being human. You can find her leading meditative retreats in the Olympic Mountains, teaching at Camp Souldust, or connecting 1:1 with clients for reiki, energy analysis, and counseling in Seattle.
