COPE Healing Tip of the Month
Now that the brutal winter and fickle spring have passed, it is much easier to be outside regularly. Meditation and mindfulness change our brains and our lives, reduce pain, anxiety, confusion and stress, boost the immune system and increase concentration, focus and compassion. In addition, the practice of meditation and mindfulness can assist in healing grief, because it helps to focus on the present moment, where grief resides. Walking meditation is practicing meditation while walking. Walking meditation can be just as profound as sitting meditation, and has the advantage of bringing the meditative experience into our activity. There is a tremendous richness of experience to become aware of as you walk. The body loves movement, and will reward you if you pay attention to how it feels! So much of the time we are caught up in our mental worlds — thinking of the past or future, planning, imagining… Paying attention to the body as you walk will help you to enjoy simply being.
