On this walk, you will learn how to meditate through walking. Walking Meditation enables you to experience a greater sense of presence and affords a deeper connection with the mountain on which you walk. The session will help you pay attention to the way you breathe and connect every step. You may well practise seated meditation and this session will help you and complete novices to learn how to use walking to enrich your walking life. We start in the heart of the Black Mountains and climb effortlessly to the ridge. We take lunch overlooking the Fechan Valley and Beacons beyond, before descending a single track to the valley floor. Meet the other walkers starting from here today for complimentary tea and Welsh cakes at the end of the walk.

Soon after a sharp right hand bend you will pass a red telephone box and then come to a no through road sign at a junction.
