Discovery day of the conscious walk and the Afghan walk in the spirit of the Walking School  of Danilo Zanin. This day takes place in Haute-Savoie, the exact place will be defined later.

Discover by the senses more than by these words what the conscious walk represents. A wonderful way to find yourself through the movement, the action. Walking is moving forward. To walk in conscience is to stop at what I do, at what I live in the moment. It is to be present. No goal to reach, summit, peak or refuge, each step being the goal.

Walking is the oldest way of moving, the most in harmony with simplicity. It leaves place for feeling more than for understanding, for questions of the mind. Here, no need to know when is the arrival, where the path goes because the invitation is in total listening to oneself. To listen to his body and to accompany him in this movement.

It promotes breathing, key to life and allows oxygenation of the entire body. Among other things, the brain which thus fed works more and offers clear, fast ideas. It brings to discover the space around us, to contemplate the generous beauty in any space of the Earth, to feel filled by this generosity, this grace.

It allows attention and therefore awareness about what I do: I walk, I breathe, I touch the ground gently. A way of being that I can, back in everyday life, transcribe in every act of my life. It is an apprenticeship to find my values, my talents, to find myself.
