I’m back from my getaway and it was fantastic. I will write and post a few pictures about my escapade to Cinque Terre soon but first the information about our next meeting. It’s going to be amazing and I’m really looking forward to it.
It’s going to be a Walk & Talk but also an introduction to Mindful Walking with Séverine Dauguet. Séverine is
a « relaxologue ». I think the best translation is relaxation specialist. You can find out more about Séverine on her site, Severine Dauguet but it is in French only. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to call her. Her English is perfect.
When? This Thursday May 22nd
What time? 9:30-11:30, please try to arrive a little earlier
Where? La grande terrasse de le Nôtre in Saint Germain en Laye. Here is a link to help you find the place: Terrasse le Nôtre à Saint Germain en Laye We will wait for you at the « Grille du Château » which is to the left of the Castle when you’re facing it. I hope this is clear enough for you! If not, please call me 06 79 17 57 60, if you’re lost or if you’re late.
Wear comfortable clothes, your favorite walking sneakers, and a light bag with a water bottle. It’s free to join us and at the end of the walk, if you wish, we can have a drink or a coffee at a little café on the terrasse. Danielle and I may stay longer for lunch and you are welcome to stay with us too. We can talk about future cafés!
Here is a brief explanation about the walk with Séverine written by Séverine Dauguet and translated by me:
« Au cours de cette promenade Talk & Walk, je vous proposerai une courte découverte de la marche consciente.
Pratiquée consciemment, la marche est un acte fortement régénérateur, une des pratiques corporelles les plus abouties qui soient.
Le but de la marche consciente est la marche elle même vécue en pleine conscience. L´expérimenter, c´est entrer dans une relation consciente avec nous même et tout ce qui nous entoure : tout est alors vécu plus intensément. La réalité s´offre à nous si nous cessons de nommer, d´analyser ce qui est perçu. Redécouvrez vos sensations corporelles : voyez, écoutez, sentez ! »
« During the Talk & Walk, I will introduce you briefly to mindful walking. When it’s done in a mindful way, walking is a very regenerating activity. It is one of the most complete bodily experiences there is. The goal of mindful walking is that the walk itself is done in a conscious way. When you do it, you are in a conscious relationship with yourself and the environment around you: you feel everything more intensely. Reality comes to us if we stop naming and analyzing everything we see. Rediscover your body sensations: see, listen, feel! »
Here is another article in English about Mindful Walking and I borrowed the image from it as well.
We hope to see you there! It’s going to be a beautiful day! You can call me at the last minute if you wish to join but it would be nice to rsvp as soon as you can so we know to look for you or not.
Have a mindful day and see you soon I hope!
Agnès, Danielle, and Séverine
