My favourite mindfulness practice is Mindful Walking and I make sure that I do it every single day with my four-legged friend and some days on my own. Why? Read on for all the benefits of this practical and accessible mindful activity, which can be done indoors as well as outdoors.
Tomorrow, Sunday 12th August, if you have booked, you can join us in the beautiful grounds of Rouken Glen Park for a 20 minute introduction to Mindfulness followed by a 40 minute Mindful Walking practice.
So Why Walk Mindfully? We are usually so busy running throughout our day to day lives to get here and there that we sacrifice the joy here in the present moment for the sake of the future.
When we practice walking meditation, it is a joy to walk purely for the sake of walking where every step we take can help us to get in touch with the natural wonders of life around us, help us to release tension in the body that we perhaps haven't noticed and generate an energy of peace that can nurture and heal us.
Mindful walking helps us:
· To reconnect our minds and bodies to the present moment as we walk.
· To enjoy slowing down and not rushing, why rush all of the time?
· To cultivate awareness of the body through simple movement.
· To develop focus, attention and calm in the mind and body.
· To relieve stress and anxiety and let go of repetitive and ruminative thinking.
· To experience the wonders of life and to connect more deeply with ourselves, with those who are walking with us and with the environment in which we walk.
Come and learn how to slow down, settle the mind and deeply enjoy the practice of walking mindfully in a beautiful local setting.
This one hour session will be led by myself.
