Walking Meditation

Everyday of the hike will involve walking meditation for the first half of the day. The monastics will provide a daily intention which all of the hikers will focus on as they hike and enjoy the nature around them. 


Walking Meditation is a practice that Thich Nhat Hanh has taught and promoted for a while now. Learn more about the practice.
