~Walking Meditation~

Walking meditation is a form of moving meditation – that is, a shift of consciousness while moving, rather than sitting or lying in stillness while focusing on the breath. Proponents of walking meditation believe that walking also stills the mind and provides a path to contemplation.

Walking a labyrinth is one form of walking meditation, but the walking meditation location does not have to be that structured. A nature path or anywhere that allows 10 to 30 paces works as long as it is a quiet location. The walking is slower than a normal pace and typically involves a particular focus, or it coordinates with the breath.

  1. I do walking meditation with prayer meditation in nature. I find it to be very calming and centering! I highly recommend it!
