Details

A mindful walk is an excellent way to clear your mind of clutter and restore your sense of focus. ... Incorporate mindful walking into your daily life in as little as 5-10 minutes a day by using all of your senses — sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch — to bring awareness to your body and surroundings.

Seasonal changes can facilitate mindfulness. As the weather changes, so does our perspective. Springtime, in particular, is a wonderful time to become more aware of the growth and life that surrounds us.

The weather’s warm and the sun is out late—it’s time to dive into our walking meditation practice. Energy is typically higher in the spring, so experiencing mindfulness on foot is one way to use that energy in a healthy way. Plus, it’s a beautiful time to be outdoors.

The first part of the walk will be regular walking, chatting, getting to know each other, talking about Mindfulness and the second part will be in "Noble Silence" so we can really appreciate our surroundings and deepen our meditation practice. We start from meeting outside Botanics Kibble Palace and will have an extended walk up and around River Kelvin before finishing at Kelvingrove Park or the option of just a general walk back along the same route.

I hope to see you there.

Best Wishes,
Dave
