Inner World of Yoga Day 3, Walking Meditation by Wendy Kolanz

Welcome to Day 3, Week 1 Yoga and Your Body

Walking Meditation

Practice for Week 1 / Day 3: Walk outside in nature and experience your senses.

Today’s practice is to experience nature with total focus and awareness, as fully as possible. Walking Meditation is a wonderful way to develop intuitive sense as you commit to being By Yourself, With Yourself, to Experience Yourself. This can actually seem like a bit of a scary thing to those of us who prefer group experience, or are constantly "connected." Others may welcome the opportunity.

 

I remember preparing for a retreat in India. People would ask what I would be doing there and I would mention meditation, and also that we would all be in silence for a period of time. I was a bit wary of the reaction, and pleasantly surprised when the majority of the responses we were along the lines of, "that sounds wonderful, I wish I could do that."

 

 BE BRAVE and COMMIT to THIS EXPERIENCE OFTEN

It is so worth the effort

For this practice you will be walking outside. the pace is slow. Walk alone in nature in complete silence, leaving your devices at home or turned off, leave your dog at home, and any companions. Experience nature with total focus and awareness, as fully as possible.

If a thought pattern comes in drawing your attention away from your experiencing of the senses, acknowledge it and return to the sensory experience. Walking meditation can be done with a group, but only works if everyone is at a retreat or workshop, and committed to their own personal practice. It is a solitary endeavor even if others around you are in the practice.

Listen to the explanation in the link and head outside. NOTE: There is also an option for indoor practice if outdoors is not possible. Begin with 5-10 minutes of practice, working up to 10-20 minutes.

The challenge is to be:  By Yourself, With Yourself, and Experience Yourself

 

Be Open to the Experiences of Your Senses and Find the Path of Freedom from Judgment

 

I hope your enjoy this practice. It has intuitive and expansion benefits.

Doors can open with every Yoga practice.

See you tomorrow.

Namaste

Wendy
