Dear friends here the details of this week’s walks beginning Monday 8th December.

Enjoy a Mindful walk along the river Lagan from Shaw’s Bridge to Minnowburn. This is a beautiful walk at a beautiful time of year. We’ll meet at Shaw’s Bridge on the actual bridge at 10am. From there we will walk along the River Lagan to the Minnowburn before winding our way up through native woodland to the secret Terrace Hill Garden with it’s magical views over Belfast. From there we’ll continue through the woods and return via the River Lagan Towpath to Shaw’s Bridge. This walk will take approx 1.5hours. Please wrap up warm and wear comfortable but stout and supportive footwear.

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.

On Wednesday 10th December we have our weekly lunch time walk in Botanic Gardens. You are invited to join us for a shorter walk over lunchtime 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 hope to enjoy the cool breeze, the birds singing and hopefully the blue skies and sunshine again!
