Live events will resume when we can gather!
A peace walk or peace march, sometimes referred to as a peace pilgrimage, is a form of nonviolent action where a person or groups of people march a set distance to raise awareness of particular issues important to the walkers. Sometimes, the marchers shout chants of protest as they go along.
Our peace walks are quite different. These follow the model set forth by the Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh (pictured above with children). He says, “There is no walk for peace; peace is the walk. By walking, we generate peace within our body, our consciousness. We embrace and heal the pain, the sorrow, the fear in us, and that is the ground for helping peace to be a reality in the world.”
The walk usually takes place in total silence, where the walkers practice a mindfulness and attentiveness to the surroundings, blessing the path they move in. The peace walks of this nature begin with a seated meditation period which is carried out into the neighborhood as a walking meditation.
Peace walks are organized upon request. A $100 minimum donation to The Peace Center is requested.
