Contemplative walking

Buddhism Buddhism in Canada Buddhist community Meditation Sumeru Books

I had the opportunity this week to take a walk in Gatineau National Park with Innen Ray Parchelo, the Tendai priest who runs the Padakun contemplative walking society (http://www.padakun.com/), along with a couple of other hardy sojourners. Ray is the author of Walk Like a Mountain: The Handbook of Buddhist Walking Practices (Sumeru 2012), and he will be guest lecturing at the University of Toronto this autumn, where Professor Frances Garrett (Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation Centre for Buddhist Studies at the University of Toronto) will be offering a course on walking.

Here are some pictures…
