Details of Walking Meditation

Let’s assume you’re going for a walk in a nearby park or around the neighborhood for about 30 minutes to an hour.

The key is to walk a distance and time that will induce a moderate level of fatigue, while practicing walking meditation.

Lifting your foot with “Up” and placing the same foot down with “Down” works well for a slower walking rhythm.

So you can create your own rhythm by lifting one foot with “Up” and placing the other down with “Down.” Alternatively, you can think “One – two” with each step.

Gradually observe the sensations in your body as time passes and changes occur.

As I walk, I consciously feel the sensation of sunlight or wind hitting my face.

With each step forward, I naturally notice the movement arms.

Gradually, I observe the sensations in my legs, feeling them becoming heavier with fatigue or experiencing the release of tension or muscle tightening.

I pay attention to changes in my waist, ankles, soles of my feet, knees, and hips as I walk.

As my foot lands on the ground, I feel the impact and vibration transmitted through it.

I also notice how the intensity varies depending on the texture and condition of the ground.

In this way, the repetitive and slower walking meditation in a confined space at home can be experienced with more diverse observations outdoors.

Depending on your body type, physical condition, and direction of walking, various modifications and applications are possible.

Explore your own walking meditation method and find what works best for you.
