Experience a Walking Meditation — A Great Way to Get Mindful

March 2, 2016

While most people in the west associate meditation with sitting quietly, traditional Buddhist teachings identify four meditation postures, including sitting, walking, standing and lying down, all with the intention of cultivating a calm and clear mindfulness of the present moment.

On meditation and yoga retreats, regular walking meditations are often included as an important part of the schedule. Benefits of walking meditations can be walking concentration, invigorating the body, relieving emotions or stress and building strength and stamina.

To try a walking meditation, find a pathway and walk back and worth. Come to a full stop, and then start again. Cast your eyes down without looking at anything in particular.
