Silent Sacred walks offers a new perpective for todays times.
Silent Sacred Walks
Peace and Unity
Since October of 2001 an independent group of individuals have
banded together to participate in a silent peace walk every month in a different
part of Los Angeles. The purpose of the walks are to create a sense of peace
and unity for people around Los Angeles. There is also an interesting history
behind the walk which you can read about on the Silent Sacred Walk website at
www.sacredwalks.com. The walks have
gained the support of several local organizations such as the Coalition for
Non violence, Interfaith Communities United for Justice and Peace and the Agape
International Spiritual Center. Still the walks have mostly been relatively
small event catering to those people who are really committed to attaining a
new perspective on life, the biggest walk had 170 people in attendance. The
walks start at 8:00am in the morning and last for about an hour.
The philosophy behind the walk is captured in a well known quote
by Gandhi, "There is no path to peace, peace is the path." As a reflection
of this, during the walk there are no banners and no protest slogans. The walks
are all about being pro peace and not anti anything. The organizers do not condemn
anyone, neither the ones who may cause violence or the ones who may protest
violence. It is the organizers view that one must push through that dialectical
opposition to create a new reality.
Everyone is welcome to join, no need to call to join or send
money. The only requirement is that you walk in silence and if possible that
you wear white clothing. The next walk is coming up this Saturday
August 10th in Pasadena at Villa Park near the corner of Villa St. and Garfield
Ave. starting at 8am. For more information you can view the website
at www.sacredwalks.com or call 310-877-9879
for more details. The last walk planned will culminate a years worth of walks
in Silverlake on September 15th starting at the Silverlake Rec. Center and will
walk around the Silverlake reservoir.
Walkers walking come rain or shine
At 8 O'clock in the morning on the weekend there aren't many
people out but there are some.
