Woods Walking/City Silence Walking Meditation at Ault Park

Woods Walking/City Silence Walking Meditation is an ecumenical practice of open and spacious walking meditation. We walk at a normal, relaxed pace with a focus on noticing what is around us.

We drink in the nature that thrives on these beautiful trails being present to that which surrounds us. And, rather than assigning values to things we let things communicate their own presence to us. Then we are awash in the simplicity of beauty, wonder and joy.

We are immersed in a natural energy that meets our own--that is our own. This energy lifts us.

An important realization from these trails is that our humanity makes us spiritual and our spirituality makes us religious.

Admittedly, we are rarely silent, as those of us walking are sharing what we're experiencing and sensing -- even taking pictures of things that we notice -- things that make us stop and say "ah"! After the hike, the pictures remind us of our intuitive revelations with each step.

The walks are #free since everything we receive there comes without charge or expectation. We'll see you at the trail entrance between the parking lots in Ault Park. Come walk with us on Sundays!
