Mindfulness Paddle on the Ipswich River

Turn your kayaking into a meditation with the Ipswich Watershed Association!

Canoeing and kayaking are a wonderful complement to a meditative practice. Our paddle will be led by Kent Harrop a graduate of the Shalem Institute in Contemplative Leadership and a life-long lover of rivers and paddling. Before entering the water we’ll be introduced to a few simple yet profound meditation mantras designed to quiet our minds.

The intent is to be as fully present to our time on the water as possible. To paddle mindfully and savor the beauty of the Ipswich River. On the water we’ll live into the wisdom of John Muir: ‘I only went out for a walk (paddle) and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in.’ Spaces are limited so please RSVP to rsvp@ipswichriver.org!
