WE RUN NANTUCKET ~ A Mindful Running Club

we run nantucket - a mindful running club

WE RUN NANTUCKET is a mindful running club on Nantucket Island that combines:

  • Camaraderie
  • Mindful movement
  • Being in the moment and enjoying the ride! 

We will officially launch we run nantucket in March, 2017.

Please JOIN US on facebook to get up-to-date details.  

For those of us who could use a running refresher, or are just getting started with running, join us on Facebook for our Couch to 5K (C25K) Facebook Challenge! 

WE RUN NANTUCKET ~ A Mindful Running Club was inspired by runner and film maker, Sanjay Rawal, who spoke and showed a clip from his film 'Sacred Running' at The Nantucket Project (TNP6) in September, 2016.  'Sacred Running' is a film about the power and resilience of running.  Sanjay partnered with Christie Turlington Burns - a marathon runner, model, and the founder of Every Mother Counts https://www.everymothercounts.org/ - to create the film.  

WE RUN NANTUCKET will begin weekly running sessions after daylight savings time in March, 2017. We will follow an 'out and back' course, running (or running/walking) for fifteen minutes out and then fifteen minutes back, followed by some gentle stretching. This approach is designed so that all runners will begin and end their runs at approximately the same time regardless of the speed with which we run. We welcome runners of all abilities with the understanding that this is an amateur running club that does not provide professional running training.*

*  For your safety, all participants need to be in sound physical health in order to participate.  If someone has a health condition or concern, please get medical clearance from your doctor to ensure health and 'body happiness'.

We R: Women, Relationships, & Resilience!

nantucket rising - We R: women, relationships, & Resilience!                    

We R is a series of weekly women's groups focusing on being kind, mindful and taking care of ourselves and others.   We R groups will explore the power of our relationships with ourselves, each other, our families, friends, and communities.  We R groups will give us an opportunity to open up with each other, face challenges, strengthen resilience, be creative, and have some fun! 

Challenges in life often surface as some form of dis-ease - when we literally feel distant from ease.   We all find ourselves in these situations from time to time - perhaps we are healing from a physical illness or facing the recurrence of one; or experiencing the loss of a job, the ending of a relationship, or the death of a loved one.  Or maybe we're recovering from a substance use disorder or disordered eating; or feeling the effects of caring about someone who is abusing substances.  Or, we may be feeling anxious about transitions, social situations, or just life in general.  Whatever we are experiencing, We R is here to help!  Together we are more powerful than any one of us is alone.

We R gives us a chance to come together, get still, connect with compassion, and listen to the whispers of our deeper selves.


By taking these steps, we hope to increase Awareness, Acceptance, and then take Action!
