heptagon

To mark World Interfaith Harmony Week (4-10 February 2013),
Evera Centre for Renewal in Trentham offers
‘Walking Meditation’
for individuals or groups
on the theme:
Religions, the GOLDEN RULE and its potential
to transform the economy and to create peace.

A meditative walk of half a mile on parkland bordering on the Wombat Forest between 9 sites symbolizing world religions and their origin. Reflecting at each site on the special gift each religion brings and walking from site to site mindful of their origin and of their aspirations toward a next step in their evolution: thus making sense of ‘inter-faith’ or ‘in-between religions’ or in ‘dia-logue’ with agnostic or atheist humanism.
