The walk can be both a physical and spiritual exercise,individual yet communal,
as well as a pleasant and creative "place-based lifelong learning" experience.

"Imagine the 'Pursuit of Happiness' as seeking Beauty and Truth;
Within, With others, and With nature and the built environment."

* First Sunday Franciscan-based Reflective Walks are inspired by:

215. In this regard, “the relationship between a good aesthetic education and the maintenance of a healthy environment cannot be overlooked”.[150] By learning to see and appreciate beauty, we learn to reject self-interested pragmatism. If someone has not learned to stop and admire something beautiful, we should not be surprised if he or she treats everything as an object to be used and abused without scruple. If we want to bring about deep change, we need to realize that certain mindsets really do influence our behaviour. Our efforts at education will be inadequate and ineffectual unless we strive to promote a new way of thinking about human beings, life, society and our relationship with nature. Otherwise, the paradigm of consumerism will continue to advance, with the help of the media and the highly effective workings of the market.
