BPWH is partnering with Hike & Mediate for an epic pop up in ATL! Hike & Mediate is a group that promotes holistic healing and exploration of the outdoors to uplift the physical and mental wellbeing within the black community. Together with Black People Who Hike they are bringing you a unique healing experience! Join us for the opportunity to reconnect with yourself and nature through a 3.5 mile hike and guided meditation under a golden sunset.
What to expect: We will ascend 757 ft of elevation up the mountain top. Once we reach the summit we will unwind with a 15 minute guided meditation while overlooking the Appalachian Mountains. As the meditation concludes we will watch the sunset and descend one mile down the mountain as the golden hour concludes.
The Golden Hour:// the time right before the sun rises and immediately after a sunset when sky is illuminated in bright orange and reds.
