Health Watchers

Home / Health Watchers

Health Watch­ers is an infor­mal group that meets twice a month to walk, explore sim­ple spir­i­tu­al prac­tices, and learn how to incor­po­rate them into every­day liv­ing. Every­one is wel­come, with the peo­ple attend­ing vary­ing from one gath­er­ing to the next. We gath­er at 9:30 a.m. (ear­li­er in the sum­mer) on the first and third Thurs­days of each month for about one hour. We usu­al­ly walk for about 45 to 60 min­utes with dif­fer­ent par­tic­i­pants walk­ing at dif­fer­ent paces. We are out­doors most days, but on days with heavy rain or ice, we plan alter­na­tive activ­i­ties indoors. Over the last two years, we have walked in the neigh­bour­hood, watch­ing the com­mu­ni­ty grow around us, checked out the trail at Roger’s Reser­voir and one of the trails in York Region for­est, walked the labyrinth at the Trau­ma Cen­tre, and spent time in both the Pio­neer and Queensville Ceme­tery. Spir­i­tu­al Prac­tices have includ­ed fin­ger labyrinths, guid­ed med­i­ta­tions, jour­nal­ing, Tai chi, and walk­ing med­i­ta­tions. Come dressed for the weath­er of the day, bring water if you wish, and join us as often as you are able.
