To complete this How-To you will need: Understanding and acceptance of what you are going to do An area to walk in A meditation track on a music player or a watch or clock Step 1: Decide when & where Decide when and where you will practice the walking meditation.

Step 2: Decide how long Decide how long you will practice. Fifteen minutes is a good amount of time for beginners. You can play a meditation track on a music player that corresponds to the amount of time you’ve chosen, or use a watch or clock as a timer.

    There is more than one level of meditation. You can meditate while listening to music, while typing, while cooking, while walking. The point is to be aware of what’s going on, and take something out of the experience. Meditation is not just sitting and humming “OHM”…which if I’m not mistaken is what a meditation track on the ipod represents. Combining this with sitting meditation adds to the experience of each.

    You miss the point. And you have no concept of the power of music. The point of meditation is not purely to escape stimulus.

    you do not do walking meditation wearing an ipod or listening to music

    Hehe… How the f… is listening to music, while meditating, mindful? How about playing a game on the phone at the same time?

    No need for music. Just stop when you want to! Just listen to your surroundings. But yes when practicing walking meditation and then going to sitting meditation will improve concentration and mindfulness.

  18. ruzickawSep 17, 2011

    this is not buddhist walking meditation. Have you ever practiced it?

  19. zenzombie72Sep 17, 2011

    This is Tai Chi, for when you have to go somewhere?
