Walking Meditation

Meditation does not have to be complicated. The Vietnamese Buddhist master Thich Nhat Hanh is characteristically simple, insightful, and to-the-point in Walking Meditation. If sitting still in one place is challenging, try walking meditation.  There are five progressive guided meditations on the CD.

The book tells the reader upfront what meditation can do:

To meditate is to learn to stop–to stop being carried away by our regrets about the past, our anger or despair in the present, or our worries about the future. By practicing the art of stopping, we can enter the present moment and be nourished by beauty and wonder of life in and around us: the smell of flowers, the warmth of sunshine, the color of the sky. To practice mindfulness is to begin to realize that we have a choice–to stop and rest, or run, to be angry or happy. Once we choose to stop, everything will be OK.
