The Community Mindfulness Walk originated with the Mindfulness Living Club. We will be walking in the style of the late Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh. According to him, “Walking mindfully means that we know we are walking; we are not walking to get somewhere nor are we caught up in our regrets or worries.
We walk to touch our aliveness and to appreciate the wonders of nature arounds us. Walking in this way, as a community, can bring much peace and joy.”
The activity will begin at 10 a.m. in front of the iris bed with a short period of instruction, followed by twenty minutes of silent group walking meditation on a flat paved path. There will be time afterwards to socialize or ask questions. All are welcome—no previous experience with meditation or mindfulness is necessary.
