Newcomers, here is what you need to know:

Walking Meditation with Thich Naht Hahn

  • You are truly welcome and we are happy that you are coming to sit with us.

  • There is no one right way to meditate. Listen to the instructions , find a comfortable way of sitting, follow what others are doing, and relax. Sitting and walking meditation become second nature with practice.

  • All those who meditate have difficult moments emotionally and physically. It’s perfectly normal. When you notice any discomfort or strong emotions that arise, take notice and then return to focusing on the breath.

  • Busy thoughts are also common. Again, take notice and return to the breathing.

  • If you have any questions or concerns please chat with the group facilitator after the meditation period.

  • Sit or walk with us and simply tune into the sitting or the walking . There is a lot to learn from those simple acts.
