Moon Walk - walking guide

— Outside - starting in Eastville Park
Guided walk for February's full moon - mindful walking exercises & moon magic!
time:17:00
price: See event details Headfirst Tickets

Information:

Take your friend on a Full Moon Walk! Feel the eyes of the non-human world on your skin. Take a moment to celebrate the wild world around you. Bring your body in tune with the rhythm of the dark night.

On each full moon of 2021 I’ll be leading a walk from sunset out into the moonlit night whatever the weather. I’d like to invite you to come along! The only catch is the old Covid-19 - so until it’s safe to lead in-person walks I’m creating walking guides to accompany you on a full moon stroll.

The guide outlines a 1.5 hour walking route in Bristol and includes several mindful walking exercises to try out along the way as well as some suggestions of small moon based rituals you can partake in. What is mindful walking? It’s a way to help you focus on being in the moment by checking in with the sensations in your body. The exercises are a really simple way to help us connect to the environment around us and find new ways to enjoy walking together.

DETAILS

The recommend time to start this walk is 5pm, Saturday 27th February.

Once you have the guide you can use it whenever you like, but its most magic to walk at dusk on the night of the full moon (or one day either side when the moon is fullest.)

On this walk you may encounter:
Mud
Rain
Darkness
Badgers
Feeling a bit cold
The moon’s glow on your face
New sensations in your body
Some nice views of Bristol

Most of this walk is offroad, sometimes on uneven ground. You can follow the walk at your own pace, you don’t need to be an experienced walker to take part. The route has some quite steep slopes, steps, some of the path is muddy and some of the route is unlit.

The walks are designed to explore some of the fantastic green areas of our city and some weird backroads and dark alleys. Do the walk with a friend so you can share the experience and keep each other safe while you bask in the glory of the moonlight! It's also definitely something fun to do with kids.

The Full Moon is a magical time to be outside! It offers a strange new perspective on a familiar world. I often find that a place I know intimately can appear totally different in the dark; I notice different things; wildlife, plant life, human activity, different shapes and shadows. I invite you to step out of your normal routine and celebrate the full moon. I truly believe that taking a moment each month to stop and reflect can help prevent everything just blurring into one long grind. (Maybe you don’t feel like this about your life but hey a regular walk with a friend at dusk is still magic!)

**************

Who is the person leading this walk?
I am Jo Hellier, a Bristol based artist and outdoor facilitator who has been making work in and inspired by nature for 11 years. My work stems from a fascination and love of the non-human world and a desire to explore and deepen our relationship to it.

My practice is a mix of listening, increasing sensory awareness and training the imagination. My work takes the form of performance, installation, nature connection workshops and leading seasonal celebrations.

I co-run ‘Coven Oven’ a supper club born out of a desire to bring people together to celebrate and connect to the seasons and the land through food & ritual. I am also the Project Coordinator at The Bristol Bike Project, a community project in St Pauls. I’m in the process of training to become a mountain leader to support my outdoor art practice and facilitation work.

********
Keep your eyes peeled for future full moon walks, each month will be a different route with new exercises. Later in the year I intend to start leading in-person group walks.

Hope to see you out there basking in the moonlight!
