Hickory Hill Park North
Shelter 800 Conklin | Iowa City

Friends from various Iowa City area Buddhist and meditation groups – including the Iowa City Zen Center, Milarepa Center, Iowa City Sangha, and the UnitarianUniversalist Buddhist Sangha – will once again come together for a picnic, conversation, and a walking meditation through beautiful Hickory Hill Park.

Families are welcome. Please bring a vegetarian dish to share and your own durable serving-wear (plates, utensils, drinking glasses, etc.) to cut down on trash and help the environment (don’t worry, extras will be available if you forget). If you have an outside game (ladder ball, etc.) you’d like to bring as well, please feel free to do that. Beverages will be provided.  

Following lunch (around 1 or 1:30 p.m.) those who are interested are welcome to participate in a silent walking meditation, in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh, where we move slowly and with clear intention, lifting and putting down each foot as if we’re kissing the earth. 

RAIN DATE: 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Saturday, May 13, at the same location
