Walking mindfully through the heart of Berlin: 30. November 2019

Dear friends of mindfulness in Berlin, dear friends of Mother Earth,

The regional group Berlin of the Network for Mindful Business is happy to invite you once again to join our annual walking meditation, which will start on November 30th at 11:00 o'clock at Berlin-Savignyplatz.

Our theme this year is "WE are the Climate Change."(German: WIR sind der Klima-Wandel). Many of us are moved by the dramatic climate changes that we are experiencing for the last years. We are also moved by the commitment of Fridays for Future activists, the warnings of scientists, and the actions of Extinction Rebellion and other groups. Our joint walking meditations are another call to wake up, to question and change our personal behavior, and to nonviolently and energetically call on all agents and players, to stop announcing and to start taking action. 

The detailed invitation of the NAW and an explanation of what walking meditation is and how we practice it can be found here as a pdf (German). In our walking meditation we share the "gift" of our attentive presence with the participants of the walk meditation and the "gift-seeking" people, who are on their Christmas shopping tours in the City of Berlin. 

By walking mindfully through the inner city, we want to set a silent sign for our inner fulfilment and against the outer symbols of purely material promises of happiness. Our practice in the midst of pre-Christmas consumption can help us to develop a deeper understanding of what we truly want to give to others and ourselves. And how individual welfare and common good or individual suffering and collective crises are connected. We will also reflect on some contemplations of the Mindful Business Commitment

Afterwards, a joint exchange takes place at the end, where everyone can have tea and something to eat. Please bring some cookies and/or something to drink.

Our meeting point is the Savignyplatz, in the southern part of the small park.

We gather at 10:50 and will start at around 11 o'clock

We look forward to the Walking Meditation, and our shared experience!

On behalf of the Network für Mindful Business and with best wishes

Kai Romhardt
