Mindful walk

Jack London State Park

Saturday March 2017 - 10:30am to

Explore the concept of “walking meditation” on Saturday, March 18, during a relaxed 1.5-mile, moderate hike to Jack London’s lake. Extend your mindful experience another three miles, if you choose.

Park docent Jeff Falconer will begin the journey with a brief overview of walking meditation, followed by a short standing meditation to ground and center the group before embarking. Much of this walk is on uneven ground, so wear sturdy shoes. Hike lasts 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. to the lake, with the extended walk from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Meet in the Ranch parking lot.

Heavy rain cancels. Space limited to 20. Admission is $15 (includes $10 parking fee) and includes a handout on Walking Meditation. Admission can be booked in advance online at, or at the House of Happy Walls Museum.

Jack London State Park is located at 2400 London Ranch Road in Glen Ellen.
