Sadly the 2020 Peace Walk has been postponed due to the current situation with the Covid-19 virus. We will walk together again when the situation improves.
‘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.
For the 16th successive year we are happy to be able to facilitate a mindful peace walk at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh in collaboration with the Edinburgh International Centre for Spirituality and Peace EICSP.
Venue: Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, John Hope Gateway, Arboretum Place, Edinburgh, EH3 5NZ.
Date: Sunday 22 March 2020
Time: 10am for 10.15am ends by 11.15am. Meet at West Gate entrance to the John Hope Gateway, Arboretum Place. Introduction to mindful walking at 10.00am. Walk begins at 10.15am.
Cost: Admission Free. Just come along on the day.
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 – in 2018 it was snowy!
This is the first of three walks organised with the EICSP. There will be two more; one at Lauriston Castle on 14th June and one at Saughton Park on 11th October. We hope you can join us.
