Mindful Walking

Nature as Medicine

Walking is a form of meditation. When we walk, we are invited to simply be.

As we practice, we invite ourselves to be fully present to the contact each foot is making with the earth. We are invited to turn towards nature and allow nature to be our medicine. We simply notice the distraction and busyness of the mind, and without giving ourselves a hard time, we come back, to each new step, in each new moment. As we walk, we discover a quiet and calm that is always available within us, we sharpen our senses to the beauty and aliveness of the natural world.



The mind can go in a thousand directions, but on this beautiful path, I walk in peace. With each step, the wind blows. With each step, a flower blooms. Thích Nhất Hạnh
