Walking Meditation with Rachael Leonard

4:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 11 outside East Gym, Campus Recreation

Walking meditation is both simple and challenging. It's simple in that it involves the intention of attending to the full experience of walking: all of the body moving through space, starting and stopping, changing directions, moving your physical form from place to place. The challenging element is becoming aware of what the mind is doing. Please join us at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 11, for this time of compassionate exploration of both body and mind in walking meditation. Dress comfortably for movement. We plan to go outside and visit the Labyrinth but in the event of inclement weather, we will stay inside at the East Gym. For more information and to register follow this link.

This workshop will give you a way to start the conversation–whether it's in the classroom, with friends or family, or in the community.
