• A Great Walk for Peace 2018

  • There are a number of ways that you could be a part of this Great Walk.

    Firstly, please donate generously from the green button above (localgiving.org/fundraising/greatwalkforpeace/).

    All money raised goes to keeping the Tara Centre open in Lancaster. Your name and your kind heart would be forever embossed in the lives of all who benefit from this place of love.

    Secondly, why not walk with us? Why not spend a day with us and experience your own pilgrimage? I can send you a sponsorship form and you could help us to raise money for the Tara Centre as you walk. We will be walking an easy 10 miles per day and there will be a number of stops for meditation. We will support each other. 

    Thirdly, become one of our Great Benefactors who offer a place of rest at the end of a days pilgrimage. A warm meal and a soft bed are the most incredible gifts for aching bones. An outline of the route is shown in the map and we are working on a much more detailed plan. Please get in touch asap if you can offer this support, jiteiwhite@gmail.com.

    Fourthly, be a follower on social media, mention us to friends and family. Spread the message of kindness and love wherever you go and whoever you meet.

     A Great Walk For Peace 2017

    World Peace Day is on 21st of September every year. Just before this day, 2017,  I had a dream. It was a dream that took me dressed in my priestly robes on a walk along the length of the country. I was expounding the message of Radical Peacefulness wherever I went; Peace of the individual, Peace in community and Peace as a whole world unity.

    On Monday 30th October 2017 I started walking, with my good friend Dave Macfarlane, from my home city of Lancaster to our capital city of London, a journey of about 250 miles. My aim was to arrive at the Cenotaph in Whitehall, London for the Remembrance Day Service on Sunday 12th November. Walking with humility, with the intention of open-heartedness, of deep listening, of offering my own insights into the Peace that lives in all of us.

     We made it to 134 miles.......

    A ligament problem on my left shin meant that by the time we reached Lichfield Cathedral I couldn't put my foot on the floor anymore. We had no option but to take our own advice on self compassion and to catch the train home. Dave and myself would like to thank all of our supporters, friends who offered us shelter and food, friends who stopped us for a chat, friends who offered us a cup of tea and a hug.

    If you want to see the greatness of humanity then take a long walk. Take a long walk with humility.
