Event Description
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 walkLeeza 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 for a restroom break. 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 pathThis particular walk will begin and end at the parking lot next to Fort Vancouver Historic Site, which is just west of the Pearson Air Museum on E 5th St. If for some reason, the lot is full, please know that parking on both sides of the street is possible (unless barricaded for a big event).We'll walk down the trail over the land bridge to the river, then west along Columbia Way into downtown and taking a restroom break at Black Rock Coffee at Broadway and Evergreen. Then completing the circle by proceeding down Evergreen back towards the Fort. More locations for these meditation walks will be added, as interests grows. This is a free community event for everyone and youth are especially encouraged to join! Feel free to bring your pets.
