Walking Meditation

Walking meditation is a great practice to use when the mind is agitated, the body is stiff, and when you are sleepy.


Walking meditation brings a number of benefits in addition of bringing self awareness. It can be a helpful way of building concentration and invigorating your body and mind, especially if you're feeling sluggish. Walking can be quite helpful after a meal, upon waking from sleep, or after a long period of sitting meditation. At times of strong emotions or stress, walking meditation may be more relaxing than sitting. An added benefit is that, when done for extended times, walking meditation can build strength and stamina.
