Walking meditation is a great way to begin integrating the power of meditation into your daily life. It is the first stage of meditation in action, that is, learning to be meditative while “out and about” in the world. It is great to do while, for example, taking a walk in the park, at the beach, or in another natural setting.

Mindfulness of walking is often recommended for people who are doing a lot of sitting meditation. If you are getting to sleepy, or your awareness is getting to “muddy,” walking meditation can perk you up. Alternately, if you are getting to concentrated and mentally “stiff,” walking meditation is a perfect way to loosen up a bit.
