This coming weeks walks. Smile, breathe and go slowly.

Dear friends, this week we will meet at the main gate/ entrance to Ormeau Park (right beside the Ormeau bridge) and enjoy a Mindful walk the through this gem of a public park. There will be a walk on Monday morning at 10am and also a walk at 6pm on Tuesday evening. There are lovely quiet and natural woodland trails in the park and we will follow these under the mature beech trees and meadows. This is a beautiful walk which will take approx’ 1.5 hours. Wear sturdy footwear and dress for the outdoors even though our Indian Summer is lingering. There is plenty of free and stress free car parking behind the Ormeau library at Dunne Stores accessed off the Stranmillis embankment.

Dear friends  you are also invited to join us on our weekly Wednesday lunchtime slot for an early autumn walk in the beautiful Belfast Botanic Gardens.  We will enjoy walking solidly, in the present moment and enjoy the seasons changing. We will meet at 1pm in front of the Palm House and enjoy the cool breeze, the birds singing and hopefully the blue skies and sunshine.

Our last walk for this week will be this Thursday October 2nd in the beautiful Waterworks Park in North Belfast.Time to meet is at 10am at the Cavehill road entrance, just inside the gate between the playpark and the 3g pitches.  You can park on the Cavehill or Antrim roads.

Wear sturdy footwear and dress for the outdoors! Although the forecast is SUNNY for the foreseeable future!

When we practice Mindful Walking we are meditating together. We walk slowly as a group, following our guide. We choose to walk in silence. The silence can be nourishing. We come back to our bodies, our footsteps, our breath and we smile. Smiling to each other, smiling to the river, smiling to the birdsong, smiling to Mother Earth.
