A Walking Meditation

Last weekend was Memorial Day, my 16th anniversary, and I taught a course I created called Creative Play Therapy Interventions.  My goal for this course has always been for the time together to feel like a retreat where the students can experience the techniques and philosophy before applying them to their own clients.  (It was also so very nice to share some things I learned from my art retreat with Liz Lamoreux.)

On Saturday, my class experienced walking meditation as we traveled a couple of blocks from the downtown square of Scottsville KY to a small grassy area where they played with their cameras.  It was a joy to watch these students' stress melt away in the sunshine.  I took the following photos.

One of the wonderful things about photos is they can immediately take us back to another time.

A time to remember.
A time to play.
A time to wonder.
A time to be yourself.
A time to take your time.
A time to breathe.


  1. These are so lovely! You remind me to put my camera in my bag this instant so I can get back to meditation walking!

  2. Beautiful photos - I bet your students really enjoyed the meditation walk - just as you did!

  3. Thanks for the reminder of meditation walking! Two of my goals for the month of June are to walk more and meditate more & I had completely forgotten that I could put the two together beautifully!


I do so appreciate each and every comment. Thanks!
