Celebrating Our Senses - Walk 4 - Look

The fourth in a series of 
Mindfulness and Wellbeing walks. 

Our Mindfulness meditation - Look - 
was lead by Carolyn Bantin 
in Kettering Civic Society Meeting Room 
on Platform One at Kettering Station.

We examined small packs of fossils 
and thought about time and journeys.

We looked above our heads and 
below our feet and collected a series of images 
of things we noticed on our walk
 which can be viewed here 

We collected Ginko leaves as we 
were lucky to find several lovely 
specimens during our walk - the 

Ginko is also known as a living fossil 
and it's other name is the 
maidenhair tree as it's leaves a
re similar to the maidenhair fern

In the garden next to the Alfred East Art Gallery

we collected more leaves in gorgeous, flame reds

We made our way through the town 
to the Fuller Meeting Rooms and museum 
where we had a private tour of their collections.

 and played the talking Drum

We filled in our walk journals

and had our picnic indoors then made 

a dash back to the station through heavy rain.

Walk distance  2 miles.

Many thanks to David, our guide at Fuller Museum and Monica from Kettering Civic Society for the use of their meeting room, both helped make the walk special and different.

The was first in a series of Mindfulness and Wellbeing "Celebrating Our Senses" walks made possible with a Grant awarded from Margaret Giffen Community Fund and Northamptonshire Community Foundation and with support from NStep.
