With Walking Meditation, you will enjoy the first in-depth instructional program in this serene spiritual practice to help you walk with presence and peace of mind whether in nature or on a busy city street.
Walking Meditation features esteemed Buddhist master Thich Nhat Hanh along with one of his principle students, Nguyen Anh-Huong, as together they illuminate the central tenets of this powerful meditative art, including:
How to recognize the miracle in simply walking-not as a means to an end, but as the opportunity to touch the fullness of life
Reversing habit energy through the unification of body and mind
Using walking meditation to work with difficult emotions such as anger and anxiety, and much more
There is a Buddhist concept known as Apranihita, or the spirit of wishlessness, in which one neither pursues desires nor flees from discomforts. With Walking Meditation, practitioners from every spiritual tradition will rediscover our home in the here and now, as the long road we all must walk turns to quiet joy.
