Peace Walk is a performative experience curated by Albagnano Healing Meditation Centre in collaboration with Cross Project and composed of three different moments: at 3.00 p.m., at the centre of Albagnano, the Dissolution Ceremony of a sand mandala, an ancient geometric representation of a symbolic universe with precise proportions, a sacred space.
This is followed by the presentation of the new mural in the form of a mandala painted by street artist 2501, one of the most important Italian urban artists on the international scene who, in his continuous search for “empty spaces”, experiments with free compositions that break the codified patterns of making art. The afternoon continues with a walk through the woods on the “cupel path” that retraces ancient places of worship where, through the ritual singing of mantras, the spectators are connected to these places that man has travelled since the dawn of time. At 18.30 “How to use your mind to be happy” lecture by Lama Michel Rinpoche at the Teatro il Maggiore. The Lama will share his experience and knowledge of Buddhist philosophy regarding themes of our daily reality, offering a different key to our lives, inviting us to reflect on the power of happiness.

Albagnano Healing Meditation Centre is managed by Kunpen Lama Gangchen – a non-profit Buddhist religious association associated with the Italian Buddhist Union (Lama Gangchen Foundation for a Culture of Peace). Founded in 1999 by Lama Gangchen Rinpoche, it brings together a community of people who share an interest in spirituality and a life in harmony with nature and promotes various projects aimed at revitalizing villages and rural cultures. The Centre, of Tibetan mahayana and vajrayana Buddhist tradition, welcomes all those who are interested in regenerating and healing the energies of body and mind and developing their human potential..
