Meditation by Kayak

Starting Sunday, June 6 Downunder Kayaking launches a Meditation by Kayak program, led by instructor, avid kayaker, and wildlife enthusiast Steven Freedman. Freedman will take a small group of paddlers on a gentle paddle of the Five Mile River where they will enjoy the water’s view of beautiful homes, magnificent boats, abundant wildlife and a natural tidal waterfall. The paddling experience is one of connecting to nature and becoming one with the kayak and water. Once the paddlers feel comfortable with their paddling skills and the environment, they are encouraged to be quiet, paddle at their own pace, breathe deeply and settle into a gentle rhythm that is not only meditative but deeply relaxing and rejuvenating. Freedman will lead the group to the Tokeneke Creek where nestled among the reeds and surrounded by osprey, egrets, herons, and other native wildlife, he will offer a guided meditation to help them fully embrace the experience. The result is a deep awareness of body, mind, water, paddle, and kayak. No experience is necessary and paddling instruction is provided.

 Downunder Kayaking is located in Rowayton, the seaside village between Darien and Norwalk, just 5 minutes from the New Haven train line and I-95, and 15 minutes from the Merritt Parkway.

The program is offered on alternating Sundays from June through early September from 9 to 11 a.m. and costs $45. Reservations may be made by calling Downunder Kayaking at 203.642.3660. Visit DownunderKayaking.com for more information.
