Uma Kadampa Meditation Centre is a peaceful haven in the centre of Carlisle. It's open to the public and there's always a warm friendly welcome if you pop in for a chat and a look round. Uma Centre really helps and inspires alot of people through teaching special positive ways of thinking that help us to stay peaceful and calm even when life is difficult. It's wonderful that there is such a place in our area. Their network of volunteers organise weekly meditation classes across north Cumbria, Dumfries and Galloway. They also offer day courses, school visits and other events throughout the year. Everyone needs to learn how to have a peaceful mind!
Uma Centre is a charity run by very kind and hardworking volunteers. The upkeep of the building relies largely on donations. At the moment all the windows (and that's quite alot!) need painting and that's why I'm doing this walk - to raise as much as possible of the £900 that's needed. Every £ will count, and if lots of people sponsor me it will help my legs to keep walking.
My plan is to walk 27 miles around the Galloway Forest Park, passing by 4 lochs: Loch Skerrow, Loch Stroan, Clatteringshaws & Black Loch.
The route will be on paths and forest tracks. To spread a little happiness as I go, at each loch I will leave one of my hand painted stones in a bag, in a fairly obvious place. In the bag I'll also put a note about my walk and about Uma KMC, so the person who finds it can choose to make a donation if they want to keep the stone.
