Enjoy the benefits of meditation as you walk. Walking meditation can be just as profound as sitting meditation. It brings the meditative experience into daily activity.
Walking meditation is perfect for those who have trouble sitting still to meditate. For those who enjoy sitting meditations, walking meditation helps bring meditation into every moment of the day.
Our approach to walking meditation is easy and informal. The meditations gently guide you to experience your body and your surroundings fully as you walk, letting go of the mind's preoccupation with naming, analyzing and evaluating what's going on. Letting go of thoughts about the past and future allows you to experience the present moment more fully.
