It’s Not the Destination. It’s the Journey.

Jana Lerbach, health/wellness coach in the Washington metro area uses walking meditation with some of her clients. “I use several techniques that include focusing on a particular color then finding everything of that color. Then I ask what emotion if any, does it bring up. Walking meditation is also good to use with little children. Ask them to pick a shape. Then find objects that shape as we walk. Another technique is searching for something such as leaves as you walk. The point is to focus on giving attention to something that’s present. Usually we are walking very slowly.”

An Insight meditation teacher describes walking meditation as a metaphor for how we want to live our daily life – making each step count. Learning to walk without a purpose or compulsion in a controllable and relaxed way, enhances the happiness we can experience.
