A Guided Night Walk over the South Downs from Glynde to Lewes
7pm to 10.30pm, Fri March 22nd, 2019
To go in the dark with a light is to know the light.
To know the dark, go dark. Go without sight,
and find that the dark, too, blooms and sings,
and is traveled by dark feet and dark wings.
Join us for a silent night time journey over the South Downs, on this guided night walk, at the time of the Spring Equinox Full Moon.
This is pretty special and a chance to experience the land at night, walking in the dark, in silence and without torches as part of a group, in a safe and supported way.
By walking the land mindfully you may drop into a quiet inner space of reflection before the conference.
This will allow you to have a direct sensory experience and connection with nature: the tastes and smells in the air, the feel of the wind as it caresses your skin, the touch of the ground under your feet as you walk.
The walk will be predominantly silent to allow the burble and chatter of daylight hours to subside and mysteries and sounds and smells of the night, and the land to draw you closer.
The darkness has long been a feared space and in embracing it in this way you open yourself up to the possibility of befriending the night.
The walk will be loosely structured, with time for some sitting reflection, and at a gentle walking pace, to allow your senses to fully expand into the possibilities offered by moving across and being with the land at night.
This guided night walk will be led by Caroline Whiteman, and includes a fire and hot drinks at the end.
