Enjoy the benefits of meditation as you walk. Walking meditation can be just as profound as sitting meditation. It brings the meditative experience into daily activity.
Perfect for those who have trouble sitting still to meditate, it's also great for those who enjoy sitting meditations. It helps bring meditation into every moment of the day.
Our approach to walking meditation is easy and informal. As you walk, you are gently guided to experience your body and your surroundings fully. Letting go of thoughts about the past and future allows you to experience the present moment more fully.
THE APP CONTAINS:
INTRODUCTION TO WALKING MEDITATION & TIPS
THREE WALKING MEDITATIONS, each with a different emphasis
DIARY PAGE - for those who want to keep notes on insights and experiences

Each walking meditation has a different focus:
BEING FULLY PRESENT Guided Walking Meditation (16 min)

ENLIVENING THE BODY Guided Walking Meditation (17 min)

ENHANCING THE SENSES Guided Walking Meditation (18 min)

Different and really cool
I really like this app because normally, I hate walking because I find it really boring. This app makes it a mental challenge that I enjoy, so I actually look forward to walking now, plus there's the added benefit that I'm training my mind. This is a really cool idea because I haven't seen any other apps like it. It would be cool if they had more than three meditations, but still a great app.
Body movement and zen space
I really like this simple app for a walking meditation. It keeps me focused on being present. I’ve recently started using it for bike riding as well. Rather than the monkey mind I have a half an hour listening to a soothing voice gently reminding me to focus inward but still able to experience the senses without labeling. My workdays are definitely more balanced when I use this app.
Nice app. Soothing voice. I have long trails in a forest to walk through and this is the perfect app to take along. Glad I found it.
*Reading through some of the comments I realized there are a bunch of critical people out there that probably won’t find happiness or contentment in any app. Not every app in the app store will work for everybody. This one works for me.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
