MindTravel SilentHike in Santa Barbara
August 12, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm PDT
MindTravel brings its newest experience, MindTravel SilentHike to Santa Barbara for the first time on Sunday, August 12th. The meeting location is below.
Allow yourself to be carried away by the deep feeling of freedom and connection with MindTravel’s newest musical experience: MindTravel SilentHike. Hikers will gather at a designated point 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 share the view and experience before heading back down to the bottom of the path.
The MindTravel team encourages all participants to bring the following:
- sneakers with good treads or hiking boots
- hiking poles (optional)
MindTravel will provide the wireless headphones.
To get to the trailhead: Take the 101 Freeway to exit 85 for Bailard Avenue (12 miles east of Santa Barbara). At the end of the offramp turn south toward the coast on Bailard Avenue. Drive straight across an intersection with Carpinteria Avenue into a dirt parking area in Carpinteria Bluffs Nature Preserve.
Trailhead address: Bailard Avenue & Carpinteria Avenue, Carpinteria Bluffs Nature Preserve, Carpinteria, CA 93013
Trailhead coordinates: 34.386929, -119.498625 (34° 23′ 12.94″N 119° 29′ 55.05″W)
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.
