Love nature and searching for ways to be in the NOW? This group group is the beautiful fusion of both! Transform your routine walk into a soothing meditative practice. Learn this special technique to harness the rhythm of your mind and breath to experience more physical fitness, a deeper appreciation for the nature around you, and more mental clarity.
In our daily lives, we spend more time walking than sitting quietly with our eyes closed. Walking meditation can serve as a powerful bridge between meditation practice and daily life, helping us be more present, mindful and concentrated in ordinary activities. It can reconnect us to a simplicity of being and the wakefulness that comes from it!
Walking meditation brings a number of benefits in addition to the cultivation of mindfulness, otherwise known as,”being in the present moment”. It can be a help to build concentration, gratitude, and a deeper connection to ourselves, nature and each other. Walking Meditation is also a fantastic way to supplement your other personal wellness practices and support your current sitting meditation or yoga practice if you have them!
The walking pace for these events is slow and deliberate...the focus is on listening to the nature around us and the feeling of our steps, the air on our skin, our deep and focused breath, and the energy we receive from the outdoor environment.
The gatherings for this group are held monthly at area parks. After doing many of these events at many different parks in Central Ohio, I choose to hold Walking Meditation Meetups in area parks that I know are consistently peaceful and quiet with a bit less "people traffic". Doing this not only allows participants to really feel the sensations and benefits of Walking meditation with less distractions, but it also introduces them to area parks that you may not have experienced otherwise! Suggestions for parks to try out are always welcome so feel free to message me here!
Our monthly outdoor Walking Meditation Meetup activities are FREE with a suggested love donation of $5.00 per person, which is used only to help support the Om2Ohm Walking Meditation and Nature programs.
***PLEASE NOTE: In addition to our walking meditation events we do post and invite our members to other meditation events and events held both outdoors and indoors. f you do not wish to be notified of these area events just let me know by messaging me here.
**Due to the meditative focus of these gatherings, we ask that you not bring pets or children with you. (We adore both though!)
