Service Description

Take your spiritual contemplation outside! Join Ann Steigerwald and others on the water for a facilitated experience of reflection while paddling a kayak or paddle board. Ann will bring some readings from Hildegard Von Bingen along with some reflection questions for you to consider as you paddle in quiet with others. We will meet at Estacada Lake found in Milo McIver State Park in Estacada at 10:45am and plan to be on the water by 11:15 am . A map with the meet up spot will be sent to you after registration. Parking is $5 for a day pass or free with an OR State park pass. As a group, we will do a leisurely paddle towards the arching bridge and back. We will stop at intervals on the lake for some shared reflection . There will be no opportunity to get out of your boat during this 1.5 hour trip. This experience requires previous boating experience and the physical capacity to get into and out of kayaks or paddle boards on the boat ramp.
