Walking Meditation

by Shirley Archer, JD, MA on Feb 01, 2006

“Walking meditation is a very wonderful way to go back to the present moment and to learn how to live deeply in this moment. . . . If you learn to walk [mindfully] for only 1 week, you may develop a good habit, and you may be able to learn to live much more deeply every minute of your daily life.” —Thich Nhat Hanh, Buddhist monk, speaking in Plum Village, France
