Part of the Festival programme – Free

Sunday 5th August, 9am – 10.15 am

Meeting at the mural on Princes Street side of St John’s (Venue 127)

This silent walking meditation is an open event. It will be led by members of the Edinburgh Sangha of the Community of Interbeing, who follow the practice of Zen Buddhist Master Thich Nhat Hanh. Before the walk begins there will be a brief introduction to mindful walking as meditation practice. Children are welcome when accompanied by adults.

‘We walk just for walking. We walk with freedom and solidity, no longer in a hurry. Let us enjoy every step we make.’ Thich Nhat Hanh.

If you haven’t experienced the Mindful Peace Walk before it really is worth the relatively early Sunday start! So many of us walking together engenders real mindfulness.
