“The universe unfolds in God, who fills it completely. Hence, there is a mystical meaning to be found in a leaf, in a mountain trail, in a dewdrop, in a poor person’s face. The ideal is not only to pass from the exterior to the interior to discover the action of God in the soul, but also to discover God in all things.” (LS 233)
This is an opportunity for you to spend some reflective time walking within Nature. Setting on a contemplative walk gives us the opportunity to be open and attentive to the sights, sounds, touch and fragrances of the woodlands around us. Distractions recede and the present moment is wonderful – enabling us to reflect and just simply ‘be’. Quiet moments can bring a special connection with our inner selves and with the mystery we call God.
The Walk: This is a grade two walk with some rough track surfaces, reasonable level fitness is required. We plan to walk slowly, taking 1 to 2 hours to walk around the fire trail.
