What better way to celebrate independence than to be surrounded by the richness and majesty of the natural world? With the Redwood Forests and Coastal Hiking Weekend, you can spend Independence Day weekend with wilderness expedition leader Gary Marcoccia. Discover the beauty of summer on the rustic coast of Santa Cruz.
You’ll participate in beginning-level hikes in the redwood forests, informal sharing, nature journaling, and nature-related teachings on science, philosophy, culture, and history.
The weekend includes these aspects:
Explore humanity’s place in the natural world across cultures, geographies, and traditions.
Learn the techniques of native peoples for walking relaxed, free, and centered—while maintaining efficient and powerful movement.
Learn how to spend time “in your body” and in touch with your senses while moving through nature.
Be inspired by the words and actions of well-known naturalists and poets—and in turn reflect on what nature means to you.
At 1440, you can enjoy wholesome food, get your heart pumping with the sea air, and disconnect and reenergize in ways that only nature can provide.
Named for the 1440 minutes in a day, 1440 Multiversity was founded on the belief that each minute is a chance to connect with what truly matters—both within and around us.
