Mindfulness is a way of paying attention to all the senses, and noticing where thoughts take us, without any requirement to do or be anything other than what we are. We walk in safe public parks with accessible paths.
Walking mindfully means walking at a slow pace, a leisurely meander, so that our attention can be on our senses and the environment. No previous experience of mindfulness is needed.
There will be the option of either following the leader, or going off-piste. We will begin with introductions and simple mindfulness guidance (20 minutes), followed by a taster (10 minutes) followed by opportunity for questions of clarification, followed by a longer period of silent walking (30 mins), and concluded with an opportunity to feedback on the experience, ask questions about how it relates to other mindfulness training, group discussion (30 mins).
The walk will follow grit paths, which are slightly uneven, but navigable for wheelchairs and buggies.
This session will be delivered by Walk Leader and Qualified Mindfulness Practitioner, David and made possible with funding from Healthy You, a service funded by Cambridgeshire County Council and Peterborough City Council.
Please wear comfortable clothing and footwear suitable for walking in variable weather conditions. You may wish to bring a bottle of water.
The group will meet in Nightingale Community Garden located within the Recreation Ground.
