Recommended by the HUFFINGTON POST. Enjoy the benefits of meditation as you walk with the Meditation Oasis® Walking Meditations app. Walking meditation can be just as profound as sitting meditation. It brings the meditative experience into daily activity.
Walking meditation is perfect for those who have trouble sitting still to meditate. For those who enjoy sitting meditations, walking meditation brings a new dimension, helping to bring meditation into every moment of the day.
Our approach to walking meditation is easy and informal. These meditations gently guide you to experience your body and your surroundings fully as you walk, letting go of the mind's preoccupation with naming, analyzing and evaluating what's going on. Letting go of thoughts about the past and future allows you to experience the present moment more fully.
THE APP CONTAINS:
THREE WALKING MEDITATIONS, each with a different emphasis
TIPS on how to get the most out of your walking meditation
DIARY PAGE - for those who want to keep notes on insights and experiences
Each walking meditation has a different focus:
BEING FULLY PRESENT Guided Walking Meditation (16 min)
This meditation helps you to be fully present to all of the experiences you have while walking -- what you experience within yourself and in the world around you.
ENLIVENING THE BODY Guided Walking Meditation (17 min)
This meditation focuses on the experience of the body while walking. It enlivens the body, strengthens the mind-body connection and is both calming and grounding.
ENHANCING THE SENSES Guided Walking Meditation (18 min)
This meditation focuses on what you see, hear, smell and feel through the sense of touch as you walk. It enhances your experience of life by enhancing your perception.

What's New in Version 3.1
minor bug fixes.
Soothing peaceful voice. Length of the three meditations offers flexibility (16, 17, 18 min). Can do one once or same one two or three times. Or you can combine the three in any way to do a 30 or 45 or full hour of walking. Very helpful in keeping my mind in the present and practicing awareness. Thanks for this app!
This app worked great for bringing meditation along with you on a walk. The guide does not tell you to "stop walking" as the other review mentioned. Each meditation begins with you standing still and coming back to breath. The voice is a little too whispery and breathy, but it is expected on guided meditation apps. I really enjoyed this app!
Each walking meditation guides me to be present. I find the guide's voice to be just right for this kind of exercise.
