Thank you all for coming out today, braving the sprinkle and embracing the chill! Adrien came wearing shorts and immediately joined me in barefoot style. Max and Ayako joined us soon thereafter and also joined Team Barefoot!

Thanks to Sachiko for ensuring we enjoyed walking in Yoyogi Park. We walked mindfully to the fountains and then turned left to walk mindfully around the loop.

Thank you leaves for being soft and light!

Clare joined as soon as she could after fixing a complimentary flat tire on her bicycle.

Thank you Amaru for choosing the pancake restaurant, and to Adrien and Max for recommending various spiritual guides and healers.

Thank you chilly sprinkle for staying above freezing so no one slipped!

Once we’ve gotten a good start on 2021, let’s continue practicing good mental and spiritual self care.

Enjoy Nature

Yoyogi Park has lots of big beautiful trees surrounding its large grassy field.

Enjoy Breathing

Get away from it all by settling into your being and noticing the motions of your body, one breath and one step at a time.

11:45am Meet at Harajuku Gate of Yoyogi Park (NEW LOCATION) https://goo.gl/maps/xabS6Nw7TgNScqeCA

12:00 noon: Enter Yoyogi Park

What to Expect:

  • We will meet at 11:45 and by noon decided where to go.
  • We will find a nice place in the big field past the fountains or a dry area.
  • I will guide us in meditation, including walking meditation.
  • Feel free to take off your shoes; whatever makes you comfortable.

Despite today’s forecast, I plan for the weather to be nice, so let’s stay in the park until 14:30 and then decide what we want to do after that.



What to bring

It will likely be quite cold, so wear layers to keep yourself comfortable. Come wearing lightweight shoes that you can carry just in case you need to put them on during the walk!

Self care is important, so wear shoes whenever you need to!
