Think of walking meditation as mindfulness in motion. Instead of focusing on your breath or mantra, focus on the vibration of your feet touching the ground. As you walk, curb your attention to your thoughts considering your feelings and tracking your movement in space. Walk slowly and allow the practice to feel simple. Walk with your arms relaxed by your sides. Keep your eyes focused six feet in front of you. When you notice your mind drift away from the moment gently ease your way back.

Focus your attention on the sensation of walking. If you find that the mental noting interferes with your ability to be connected with the action of your motion, redirect your focus. Continue processing, connecting to the earth pace by pace. Track your movement and continue  until your mind is free of noting your thoughts.
