Thích Nhất Hạnh

Thích Nhất Hạnh

Thich Nhat Hanh on Walking Meditation
“ Many of us walk for the sole purpose of getting from one place to another. Now suppose we are walking to a sacred place. We would walk quietly and take each gentle step with reverence. I propose that we walk this way every time we walk on the earth. The earth is sacred and we touch her with each step. We should be very respectful, because we are walking on our mother. If we walk like that, then every step will be grounding, every step will be nourishing.”

Walking has been practiced as a meditative technique for thousands of years.

Walking meditation, also known as mindful walking, is an active practice that requires you to be consciously aware and moving in the environment rather than sitting down with your eyes closed. The practice brings you closer to nature and your body. It also helps strengthen your concentration, makes you more aware, and connects you to the present moment.

The walk will end on Douglas Street on the south bank of the city at the Corks Esoteric Buddhist Temple where the walkers will be welcomed with a cup of coffee and people can light a candle for World Peace. Later a Buddhist Ritual will pray for World Peace
