Fresno Mindfulness Walks will lead two Saturday morning walks as a way to celebrate Fresno State's Homecoming week! Walks are about 3 miles, at a stroll to medium pace, and take about an hour and a half. By walking mindfully and without talking, you can experience this gem of a campus in the midst of the changing fall colors. At the conclusion of the walk, we'll spend a few minutes talking about our walk experience.  

Walks are free and you can join one walk or both. Enter from Shaw and Maple, parking is relaxed

For walk notifications, go to the FMW website, and sign up in the yellow bar. 

While masks are optional outdoors, please bring a mask in case we wander indoors, including through the spectacular Henry Madden Library.
