We recommend moisture wicking materials to keep you dry. - Sturdy hiking boots or shoes are best, trail sneakers with good traction work well too. We also recommend wearing layers to keep you comfortable in the changing temperatures. We will plan to do some journaling and guided meditation once we reach the summit. We encourage you to bring your journals and a pen. Please also bring a blanket or towel to sit on if you are uncomfortable sitting on the ground. As a reminder, this is a safe space, and a safe space is a space were all individual opinions and perspectives are respected and where confidential information can be trusted to remain within the confides of the group.
