How is our creative capacity enhanced by choosing to walk in the landscape for contemplative purposes?
Are there commonalities between the place you choose and the place I choose, when we walk to think things through or to refresh, reflect and renew? Where and when do you go for a contemplative walk? How fast or slow do you walk on this path?
What is a contemplative walk? A Contemplative Walk : a place where you walk to transform, problem-solve, clarify your thinking process or meditate in a restorative way that affects your creative potential.
We invite you to participate in a survey about the places you choose to walk for contemplative purpose.
The work is being undertaken by Professor Jody Rosenblatt-Naderi, a long time collaborator with Walk21, from Ball State University, Indiana, USA. Her work has resulted in award winning streets and gardens all with a focus on increasing holistic health for communities and providing for those who walk.
The results will inform an understanding of the role of walking places and pulse.
