We are running another Mindful Peace Walk at the Royal Botanic Edinburgh in March as part of the Edinburgh International Festival of Middle Eastern Spirituality and Peace. This has always been a successful event with many people taking part and a wonderful atmosphere. We hope you will be able to join us this year.
Venue: Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, John Hope Gateway, Arboretum Place, Edinburgh, EH3 5NZ
Date: Sunday 15 March 2015.

Description: This silent walking meditation is an open event. It will be led by the lay members of the Edinburgh Sangha of the Community of Interbeing, who follow the practice and teachings of Zen Buddhist Master, Thich Nhat Hanh. The walk begins at the John Hope Gateway of the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh. Before the walk begins there will be a brief introduction to mindful walking as meditation practice. This is not a protest or a campaigning event, so please do not use any banners. Children are welcome when accompanied by adults. Please remember to wrap up warmly.
‘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.
