Contemplative Walk

Fridays, August 3rd, 10th, 17th, 24th & 31st


Join a park interpreter on a contemplative walk around Walden Pond. You are invited to confront the essentials of life and nature, walking in Henry David Thoreau’s steps while learning about how eastern philosophy may have influenced his writings. Please gather at the Thoreau house replica.

“As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.” –Thoreau

This is a free program but there is a $5 parking fee. All children must be accompanied by an adult. For more information call park staff at (978) 369-3254. Reasonable accommodations upon request.
