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.
