Have You Heard? 30-Day Sit Spot Challenge

One of our workshop presenters, Randy Eady, shared this information about the 30-Day Sit Spot Challenge with us, and we thought you might enjoy it too!

The 30-Day Sit Spot Challenge takes place April 10-May 10 and "is a way for you to connect with the depth of the natural world through one spot in the nature," according to the Wilderness Awareness School website.

From the American Wilderness School website:

What is a Sit Spot?

The Sit Spot is an age-old practice of going to one spot in nature over a long period of time, making observations of what happens in nature at its baseline state. It is essential for it to be close to your house and have a feeling of safety. It is ideal to for it to be as wild as possible, but many people have sit spots in their back yards.

How does it work?
It's simple: You will go to your Sit Spot for at least 20 minutes per day for the entire 30 days.

Do I have to go to the same Sit Spot every day?
No. While it is ideal to go to the same spot every day it is not necessary. If you need to find a new spot while you are away from your normal Sit Spot find a spot that is as wild as possible and sit there.
