Due to COVID-19 the Mindful Walks are cancelled for October and November, 2020. The next walk will be on Sunday 13th December, 2020.
On the second Sunday of every month (weather permitting) we will enjoy one of the most iconic beaches in the world, walking and meditating to support mental health. This moving meditation is a community walk that will give you an opportunity to slow down and reconnect to your surroundings and yourself. 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.
The benefits of walking mindfully, or as a moving meditation, allow us to find stillness in the present moment. We are constantly being distracted by thoughts and text messages so Staley Health want to help you to connect to stillness and the present moment, allowing you to connect more deeply with yourself and the world around you.
We will start the morning with a short meet and greet, including a little bit of guided instruction about how to walk mindfully. I will then guide you through a 30 minute silent walk along the Torquay Beach walking track or on the beach if it's warm. 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 silent walking experience you will be invited to join your fellow walkers at Growlers Torquay to share your experience and enjoy a cuppa. These walks are suitable for everyone (8+ years), so no prior meditation experience necessary.
The walk will begin at Fishman's Beach outside The Salty Dog Cafe 47 The Esplanade, Torquay meeting outside at 9:00am and finishing up at Growlers 23 The Esplanade, Torquay at 10am to share your experience with other mindful walkers.
"Nikki's love for humanity and wanting to make a difference to people's lives is only one of her endearing qualities. She has helped me conquer some long term self defeating habits and has displayed an ongoing commitment to our relationship. I feel that she is a soul that can make a difference to your life also".
