What to Expect
Itinerary: Guests will meet at one of several different locations in either Bar Harbor, Town Hill or Southwest Harbor. After a brief introduction to Acadia Mindfulness Adventures & a review of our itinerary, we will head out into nature, either on or off the property of the Bar Harbor Club. All excursions include Guided Mindfulness Instruction for a variety of practices such as Mindfulness of Breath, Walking Meditation, Mindfulness of the Senses & Mindful Eating.
Weather: Because Mindfulness is a practice of being present to "what is", these excursions are all-weather permitting (we will venture out in all weather!), with two exceptions, lightening storms & torrential downpours. In case of unsafe weather, guests will have the option to experience mindfulness inside & on location.
Location: Outdoor mindfulness adventures are held on the beautiful property of the Bar Harbor Club or in a predetermined location either in or outside of Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island. On park excursions you can expect to walk/hike 1-2 miles round trip. Experiences are created to focus on mindfulness practices rather than exertion and are tailored to your specific level of ability.
Dress: Weather in Maine can change quickly, and temperatures can vary widely within the same day. Layers are always a good option. Dress appropriately for sun, rain, and wind. If going off property, please wear appropriate footwear for walking/hiking (sturdy shoes with good support).
Time: Excursions at the Bar Harbor Club are scheduled for 90 minutes. Outings into Acadia will require additional time to allow for travel & parking and can be scheduled for 2-4 hours at an additional cost.
What to Bring: Curiosity & openness to your experience! In addition, you may want to bring an extra layer of clothing, or rain gear, weather dependent. A water bottle if desired. Insect repellent & sunscreen. It is always nice to have a journal for reflection but it is not required.
Cancellation Policy: Private or small group sessions requires 24 hour cancellation notice. Less than 24 hours notice requires payment of the full price of the scheduled session.
Park Passes: Please note that if your excursion is planned for Acadia National Park, you must purchase a park pass/pay the entrance fee, and carry this with you while adventuring. Entrance fees may be paid at 1) Sand Beach Entrance Station, 2) Hulls Cove Visitors Center or 3) Bar Harbor Village Green. Vehicle hang tags must be displayed at all times while in the park. Passes also may be purchased on line at www.recreation.gov/pass/
