Walking Meditation Retreats

Coming soon

In the midst of our chaotic world, we tend to lose touch with the peace and joy that are available in each moment: the sunshine, the birds’ singing, the autumn leaves, a baby’s smile.  The practice of walking meditation brings us back to being fully present and alive with every step, filling each moment with peace and joy.

“Meditation is not meant to help us avoid problems or run away from difficulties.  It is meant to allow positive healing to take place.  To meditate is to learn how 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 the beauty and wonder of life. 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 okay.” (Thich Nhat Hanh – Zen Master and teacher of walking meditation)

Walking meditation is for everyone no matter what spiritual beliefs you may have.  This is a wonderful tool to help slow down the currents of the world and become centered.  Walking slowly while focusing on each step helps the mind become still.  You may repeat a favorite phrase or word.

Be Still and Know that I Am God (Pslams 46:10)

hunter_waterRetreats are designed to create an atmosphere where you can experience the letting go of concerns and the hustle and bustle of life.  The key is to experience the Presence within.   It is nice to learn with a group of people committed to giving the gift of silence to themselves and others.  This creates a synergy where we are all of one mind. A beautiful way to discover the beauty within and all around!   If this idea is new to you, take some time to contemplate and consider experiencing meditation in this way. You will learn how to take this practice into your daily life style and  bring balance and grounding throughout the day. Perfect for those who have a hard time sitting still!

May you be filled with Peace!
