Conscious Walking

‘Although we walk all the time, our walking is usually more like running.  When we walk like that we print anxiety and sorrow on the Earth.  We have to walk in a way that we only print peace and serenity on the Earth.  If we can take one step like this, we can take two, three, four and five.  When we are able to take one step peacefully and happily, we are working for the cause of peace and happiness for the whole of humankind’     Thich Nhat Hanh, Peace is Every Step

How do you walk? Where is your mind?  Are you aware of what is taking place in your body?  Are you always rushing from one place to another just to arrive?

Can you become fully aware of the experience that we know as ‘walking’?  Can you feel all the muscles, joints and movements? Can you simply walk to experience ‘walking’ without the need to arrive somewhere? Can walking become a present moment experience that allows you to be fully conscious?

I invite you during the month to become aware of how you walk and to have the intention to walk consciously with lightness and ease… and experience and feel the benefits!

 “Don’t hurry.  Present moment is a wonderful moment.”

Let me know what your month of conscious walking unfolds… in joy!
