Come learn the joyful walking meditation technique of love breathing.
This simple, yet profound, technique can enhance and strengthen any person’s spiritual practices. Being non-sectarian, yet deeply spiritual, it augments Buddhist, Christian, Hindu practices and from any path that has love at its core. It effectively brings a “walking form” to Buddhist Metta/loving-kindness meditation or Christian and Hindu devotional/contemplative practices.
Weekly meditative walks will start and end at the Ananda Community in Mountain View CA. There is no charge. I’ve taken this walking meditation daily for over a decade now. Always I’m filled with a calm, vibrant joy that then pervades the next day. Hosting walks is my way of giving back for such a blessing.
There will be a 15 minute introduction, if needed, at the start, then a 30 minute walk, followed by a 10 minute sitting meditation (in the Ananda Community meditation room).
These slow walks exercise the soul without challenging your body.
It does take some practice to fully appreciate and experience the power of this technique to still your mind and open your heart. The key is a coaxing process to bring yourself from distraction to joyful stillness. It probably takes about a month of practice to really become adept with it. So while coming to a drop-in walking meditation can be very helpful, it really isn't enough. If you are very interested in this, it would be best to go through the video class on your own while coming to the drop-in walks when possible.Please see the meetup description.
