Join weekly in community to practice walking meditation. The hour will be broken into community introductions and teaching + instructions, walking meditation and will end with time for reflection, questions and discussion centered on practicing mindfulness in our daily lives. This group is suitable for those with the ability to move along on a flat pathway for 30 minutes in silence.
Humans of every race, cultural/gender/sexual identity, and age are welcome. Walking meditation is a practice in bringing awareness and compassion into our movements, into our bodies and therefore into our lives in a very accessible way. Those who practice walking meditation develop the understanding that mindfulness can be practiced anywhere. Through this practice, we get an intimate awareness of our body and what it means to cultivate peace.
The Welcoming Path
by Thich Nhat Hanh
The empty path welcomes you,
fragrant with grass and little flowers,
the path paved with paddy fields
still bearing the marks of your childhood
and the fragrance of mother's hand.
Walk leisurely, peacefully.
Your feet touch the Earth deeply.
Don't let your thoughts carry you away,
come back to the path every moment.
The path is your dear friend.
She will transmit to you
and her peace.
Register and you'll be added to the reminder emails sent on Thursday afternoons, with location specifics.
