Walking Well Michael Gelb“Walking is humanity’s best medicine.” Hippocrates said that long ago, and contemporary science is validating this ancient wisdom. Many of the contemplative traditions include mindful walking as a meditative practice and even the Buddha praised the many benefits of walking meditation.

Today it is well known that walking strengthens the immune system, improves cardiovascular functioning, counters anxiety and depression, and promotes creative thinking. But what if you could get even more out of every step? You can, by learning to walk naturally and with mindfulness. In this practical seminar, you will learn about your natural design and how you can remove the interference and bad habits that compromise your ease while walking.

With insights gleaned from science, history, and contemplative practices, Michael will help you discover how to walk with greater presence, grace, and resilience. “Walking Well” is a comprehensive path to physical, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing. The tailored approach of the workshop will help you discover your own path toward greater energy, mindfulness, and creativity.

Topics include:

  • How to make every step easier
  • Four Dignities of Humanity: How sitting, standing, and lying down can help you walk well
  • Breathing freely while you walk
  • Lessons from bear, elk, crane, and dinosaur
  • Walking in the footsteps of genius
  • Walking meditation

Registrants will receive on-demand access to recording(s) that can be viewed for two weeks following the conclusion of the program.
