Stroll for Your Soul offers 21 days of accompaniment through a brief email delivered early each morning to your inbox. Each email will offer a practice, or a reflection, or a poem, or a photograph giving direction and encouragement to your time spent walking or jogging or biking or even skate boarding.
It takes 21 days to create a habit. Use these daily emails as motivation to get outside. They will help you notice the green and growing glories of Spring. If you are a regular walker, they offer practice at paying attention and being in the present moment. Weave silence and mindful reflection into whatever minutes you have to give to your self. Deepen your awareness of seeing the Divine in the ordinary and practice being in the present moment with these daily emails.

- Some groups offer Stroll to groups with young parents, university or college students.

WayMarks …. is our 2019 Stroll for Your Soul theme. Stroll for the Soul comes from The Prayer Bench and this year Caroline from Kereru Publishing was invited to join Janice MacLean from The Prayer Bench, in writing and curating the Stroll. Stroll explores the unique spirituality of our landscapes from very different parts of the world, and we look for WayMarks in song, scripture and our everyday experiences. Come Stroll with us! Northern Hemisphere Strollers are strolling from May 11 to 31 and can sign up on The Prayer Bench website.
