Using Walking Meditation for Stress Relief
October 12, 2022 at 6:00 pm - 6:30 pm
What was the last time you walked alone — in the city, in the local neighbourhood, in the countryside, or on a remote hiking trail — where was your mind at? Did you make a phone call? Were you listening to some music or a podcast? Or maybe you were lost in thought. When we’re outside, it’s almost second nature for our legs to be moving while our attention is elsewhere.
Walking meditation is designed to bring body and mind in sync while we’re walking. And if you don’t like to sit and close your eyes to meditate, this is the best alternative for you to discover a new form of meditation that trains the mind in awareness, focus and presence.
