2023 Walk For World Peace
Saturday, May 6th, 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM EDT
We will meet inside a class room in the Environmental Center Building. Enter the park off of Bush River Road. Drive up to the window and let them know you are attending a potluck with Kadampa Meditation Center. This will allow you into Saluda Shoals Park without paying the parking fee. From there drive to the stop sign and make a right, the environmental building is first building on the right. They'll give you directions to the class if needed. The Class room will be open beginning at 9:30am. The class rooms have a sink and outlets but no refrigerator so please bring a cooler if necessary. A short meditation at 10 and then we will walk about 10:15.
After 16 months together at our new location and navigating the uncertainty of these times, it is great to be able to once again come together in person with our growing community.
This spring we are holding a community walk for world peace at Saluda Shoals Park and vegetarian potluck in the Environmental Center. We hope this will become an annual event.
The proceeds raised from fundraisers like the Walk for Peace provides our Kadampa Meditation Center with invaluable financial support needed to continue to have a center for our local Kadampa community and beyond. Class fees and memberships definitely help, but particularly since the pandemic, are lower than operating expenses.
We deeply value our community, what we have built together, and despite so much adversity over these last couple of years, we look forward to continue to make available to as many as possible, the precious method of meditation and helping to bring more inner peace, love, compassion, and wisdom into this world.
