MindTravel SilentHike in Portland
April 28, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm PDT
Reserve your headphones now for the latest innovation in hiking and meditation as MindTravel brings its signature SilentHike to Portland for the very first time. On Sunday, April 28th we will explore beautiful Forest Park from 4:00pm-6:00pm.
The group will meet at the Vietnam Veterans of Oregon Memorial and begin the collective journey from there.
Allow yourself to be carried away by the deep feeling of freedom and connection with MindTravel’s newest musical experience: MindTravelSilentHike. Hikers will gather at a designated point in Portland and will receive their headphones to wear for the duration of the experience. Once the group reaches the pinnacle of the hike, we will take time to absorb the gorgeous Portland scenery before heading back down to the bottom of the path.
About MindTravel SilentHike
MindTravel SilentHike journeys are the newest way to practice walking meditation. Over the course of the two-hour experience, you’ll join other MindTravelers exploring local hiking trails while listening to MindTravel music through headphones. The evocative, improvisational piano music ignites freedom and expansiveness that amplifies the healing and inspirational power of being in nature.
The MindTravel team encourages all participants to bring the following:
- sneakers or hiking boots with good treads
- hiking poles (optional)
- weather appropriate attire
MindTravel will provide the wireless headphones.
Please remember that part of this hike may occur during/after sunset. While hiking experience is not necessary, attendees should be comfortable walking downhill wearing a headlamp.

“MindTravel is an experience like no other. Imagine a concert pianist improvising beautiful, peaceful music with imagery in the background that matches the beauty of the music — combined, it is almost meditative or trancelike.” – Jason Wachob, Founder of mindbodygreen
