Mindful Peace Walk – Saughton Park – Sunday 10 October 2021 at 12 noon

Dear Friends

At last we can walk together:

  • Venue: Saughton Park and Gardens, Balgreen Road, Edinburgh, EH11 3BQ.
  • Date: Sunday 10 October 2021.Time: 12 noon. Gather in front of the Bandstand for 12 noon.
  • Event Description: This silent walking meditation is an open event. It will be led by the lay members of the Wild Geese sangha in Edinburgh who practice in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh. Before the walk begins there will be a brief introduction to mindful walking as a meditation practice.
  • Cost: Admission Free. Just come along on the day. 

Alan Spence, former Edinburgh Makar, will read Sri Chinmoy’s Dreamer of Peace poem from the plaque by the statue, and add another short piece on oneness and inclusiveness.

We will also be mindful of the upcoming 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow on 31 October – 12 November 2021 in the readings and in the awareness that we bring to our time together.

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.

Please maintain social distancing, and follow all recommended COVID-19 protocols.

See you there !
