Event description

Description

Arriving

We'll begin with getting settled in, silencing phones and receiving an orientation on walking meditation from Leeza. Which includes an ever-present invitation to be peacefully alive, without the distractions of busy mind.

The walk
Leeza will guide the walk with encouragement to stay together and allow whatever thoughts/experiences to arise without resistance. Our only pauses in movement are to cross streets. And if you find yourself running late, feel free to catch up with us on the path. We'll be the silent mass, moving effortlessly through life.

The path
As you might imagine, this walk will simply encompass the park itself. We'll convene at the Shemanski Fountain at the north end of the park blocks. And depending on the month, we may end at another point within the park, having already traversed the length of it possibly a few times. If at anytime you require a restroom break, please know that there are several places (cafés and the like) along our walk.

More locations for these meditation walks will be added, as interests grows and please join us for the walk in Vancouver on the first Saturday of the month @ 10am. You'll find that event listed separately. This is a free community event for everyone and youth are especially encouraged to join! Feel free to bring your pets.

Accessibility for all
This particular walk is accessible for those with canes, crutches, wheelchairs and walkers, with modest changes in elevation.

Groups encouraged to join

If you're part of a group, community or organization that could benefit from attending, we would love to have you join us!
