3000km! Vienna and Budapest

Greetings! In this newsletter we will share our peace-adventures from Vienna, Bratislava and Budapest. Since the last update much has happened. In the beginning of August Ebba returned to the peacewalk and has now become a permanent member! After a few days of walking we finally reached Vienna and 3000km of the peacewalk, just in[…]

Loneliness

The past weeks have been beautiful. Entering Austria, finding protection from thunderstorms in a mountain chapel, meeting pacifists and Yogis in Linz – the city of peace and recording meditations for our app. Now, I’m resting my legs since Friday in the home of my new and dear friend Simone and her parents. It’s an[…]

Why we are closer than we think 

Hi! It’s been two weeks since I left Prague now, and I’m just a few days from the Austrian border. The next major city is Linz, “the city of peace,” which I greatly look forward to. View of wonderful Vltava river Resting my feet in front of the Hluboka Castle Kind Marta gave me and[…]

“Just Walk” A very dear friend whom I met in Berlin told me these wise words. Again and again I came back to them when I fell into doubts about the Peacewalk. Doubts like this one: How is me walking around the Earth going to create peace? Before I started I didn’t understand this myself.[…]

A New Beginning

Tuesday the 9th of May I went by train down to Leipzig and on this Wednesday, the Walk2Peace finally resumed! It’s been almost 5 months since I went back to Sweden for the break. Why? So many reasons. One of the most important was to be with my grandmother who was living by herself at[…]

What is Peace?

This is a question I have evoked in my mind and heart again and again. A “Koan” for those familiar with the Zen Buddhist term.  A question that yields a continuous stream of answers. Like a tree that yields fruits every new season, every time I repeat the question I receive new fresh answers that[…]
