Let’s slow down and walk together
Join us for a morning of mindful walking and meditation to support mental health.
The Mindful Walk is a community walk like no other. Instead of racing to the finish line, it is an opportunity to slow down and reconnect to our surroundings and to ourselves. Slow and steady wins the race. We walk in the name of supporting mental wellness, whilst sharing and embracing the journey with those around us.
When we come together as individuals to nurture our own mental health, we create opportunity for that to have a ripple effect on those around us.
Why walk mindfully?
Our lives are full of chatter, alerts and distractions trying to grab ahold of our attention all at once. We're talking about the three text messages and lunch reminder you've received whilst trying to read this (wait what is for lunch?)... see what we mean?
We want to help you find stillness and awareness in the present moment. To truly connect with each other, yourself and the world around you through a morning of mindfulness.
So what's happening?
We will start the morning with a short meet and greet, including a little bit of guided instruction about how to walk mindfully. We will then guide you through a 30 minute silent walk around the gardens. Along the way you will encounter mindful reminders to bring you back to the present moment through the ignition of various sensory experiences.
After your mindful walk experience you will be invited to join your fellow walkers in the lululemon chill-out-zone. This space is designed to keep the feeling of connection flowing whilst you enjoy live music and a few surprise goodies! This event is for everyone (8+ years), so no prior mindfulness experience is necessary!
