Choose to join 1, 2, or all 3 NightWalks

In this class, you will learn to walk in the dark, without artificial light, using the natural abilities of your eyes and brain. This training also helps you obtain the necessary practice to stay in your peripheral vision for longer than a few minutes, training your neurology to do so easily and enjoyably.  You can use what you learn in class for seeing at night and/ or for staying peripheral in daylight so that you can improve responsiveness, keep yourself safe, go into flow states more easily, and increase pattern recognition in all senses.

This class operates differently than other classes facilitated by Katie Raver so we can accomodate for weather, humidity, and stellar events.  There’s plenty of time between sessions to connect with other participants, find a hiking trail or swimming hole to explore,  or enjoy Taos and the surrounding Carson National Forest.  


Our schedule for this training:

NightWalking Fundaments
Learn and practice the basic peripheral vision exercises including seeing peripherally horizontally, vertically, and with depth.  Experience a Virtual NightWalk.  Learn more about the role of the eyes and the brain in vision and in seeing in the dark.   Explore you own ability to see in the dark and to rapidly enter a flow state.  This class is taught in a live class on Zoom 2-7 days prior to class and lasts about 3 hours.  It is included with your tuition.

Prepare for Your First NIghtwalk
Review NightWalking Fundamentals principles and make sure you have all the gear and layers you need for your first NIghtWalk.  This class takes place in person in Taos a few hours before the first NIghtWalk.

NightWalk 1 / Friday, August 2 / We meet at a trailhead within 30 minutes of central Taos, near sunset time.  We will announce the exact time the day of, based on weather and other conditions.

Nightwalk 2 / Saturday, August 3 / Another NightWalk at another location!

NightWalk 3 / Sunday, August 4 / Another NightWalk!

Rain date NIghtWalk / Monday, August 5 / Just in case one of our walks gets rained out, we reserve this date as a backup.  It’s very, very rare that we get rained out or can’t move our NightWalk time to accomodate rain.  

Closing Session / Monday, August 5 / Meet in person on the moring after our last NightWalk for brunch and to review everything we learned.

During classroom sessions, enjoy learning in a small group environment, as Katie guides you through experiences that will expand your ability to see, hear, and feel, and to use that increased sensory acuity to shift your attention to explore new reactions, responses, resources, and states of being.

In the evening NightWalks, the class meets in the starkly beautiful desert outside Taos to participate in NightWalking. Bring your natural curiosity along with your broken-in hiking shoes as we leave civilization and enter the natural world at night.  Because of its arid humidity and for other reasons, Taos, New Mexico is the easiest place to learn to NightWalk.  

Some learnings from this class can be applied and used right away in your own learning path, relationships, career, and personal development.  Other learnings may take time to develop or arise in their own time, in the weeks and months following the class.
