Mindfulness practice and meditation are often associated with stillness, and with sitting in particular. However, standing and walking meditations are just as powerful gateways into what it means to engage with the world in a mindful way. Tara Brach guides us through this type of practice in this standing and walking meditation.

Mindful Movement

Moving mindfully through a walking meditation can help us to better understand how we might embody mindfulness in our daily lives. Mindfulness is not a state of ‘doing nothing’; it is, instead, about harnessing open awareness. As we stand mindfully and then bring ourselves to walk, we can tune into every part of the body, noticing the way our weight shifts as we move, the sensations against the feet, the other joints involved in the action, and the world beneath us. We can also focus solely on the shifting sensations within the feet as we lift them up and plant them into the earth.

Grounding Practice

Walking meditations are also a powerful way to feel more connected with the world we are an intimate part of. As we practice treading lightly, we become more aware of the blessing of this physical existence. Mindful movement also helps us to quiet the mind and reconnect to the physical body in a meaningful way. It grounds us in a deep feeling of peace, contentment, and harmony with all that exists within and around us.
