Celebrate the spring weather with a guided meditation walk, taking in the sights and smells of the forest as it begins to come alive.

When: Saturday, May 12 at 9:00am

Where: Butler Head Preserve in Bath

KELT invites you to take some time to forget the stressors in your life and experience the calming power of our natural landscape. 

Join KELT volunteer and Bath resident Tim Blair to fully experience nature by bringing focus and attention to all the senses while walking through this beautiful preserve. Tim will provide a brief introduction to mindful walking in nature which will include instructions on bringing focus and attention to walking, seeing, and hearing. Most of the walk will be done in silence with occasional guidance and reminders from Tim.

Butler Head Preserve is owned by the City of Bath and protected by a conservation easement held by KELT. The Bath Community Forestry Committee maintains the trail network and manages the property. At 141 acres, Butler Head Preserve is forested with shoreline along Merrymeeting Bay and Butler Cove.

The walk will last approximately one hour and cover easy to moderate terrain. This event is light rain or shine and will be rescheduled in the event of heavy rain.

Tim Blair is a Nonprofit Systems Consultant living in Bath and is a teacher of the Mindfulness Based Stress Reducation Program (MBSR), an 8-week class that helps participants cope more effectively with short and long-term stressors using meditation, group discussion, and gentle yoga.

To get to Butler Head Preserve: From Bath, follow Oak Grove Ave. north and continue as it becomes Whiskeag Rd. Turn right on North Bath Road and travel north until you reach Varney Mill Rd. Turn right and continue north until you see Butler Head Rd. (Google Maps calls it Butler’s Cove Rd.) on the left and the sign for Butler Head Preserve. Turn left and follow the road to the first parking area and kiosk.
