Christina Shaul conduct mindfulness walk with SCBWA

The Sanibel Captiva Business Women’s Association held two mindfulness walks Saturday, Jan. 29 and Wednesday, Feb. 2 led by Cristina Shaul, a volunteer with the “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge.

Together, the women of SCBWA explored concepts of mindfulness and considered physical and mental benefits of spending time in nature with a hike around Ani Marsh. Through senses and various mindfulness exercises, the women of SCBWA were able to connect with themselves and peace found in the present moment. One could sense the world around them in a meaningful and purposeful way. The event fit well with SCBWA’s 2022 theme on health and wellness.

Shaul states the walk around Bailey Tract as a way to “check out [our] track that not many people know about.”

“The walk was a great way to start my day,” said Maureen McGauran, SCBWA board member. “It is easy to go about your day running from one thing to the next, but taking the time to center and be present is so important.”

San Cap BWA holds a speaker series on the third Tuesday of the month at various restaurants and businesses around Sanibel and Captiva. San Cap BWA also hosts a Tips and Sips event every third Wednesday of the month and rotates between Sanibel and Captiva restaurants.
