Stroll (or Roll) for Your Soul invites mindful attention and offers 21 emails delivering incentive, focus and inspiration to your email inbox.
It takes 21 days to create a habit. Use these daily emails as motivation to get outside. They will help you notice the green and growing glories of spring. If you are a regular walker, they offer practice at paying attention and being in the present moment. Weave silence and mindful reflection into whatever minutes you have to give to yourself. Explore our 2019 theme, WayMarks, with Janice from the Prayer Bench, strolling in the Canadian Maritimes and Caroline from Kereru Publishing, strolling in New Zealand. Please let Rev. Catherine know if you would like to participate.
