Walking meditation on Lyall Bay beach

  • Spruce Goose 30 Cochrane Street Rongotai, Wellington, 6022 New Zealand (map)

We’ll meet in the car park in front of Spruce Goose, and end with drinks at Spruce Goose afterwards, if you wish.

~ Bad weather backup ASB Sports Centre, upstairs + drinks at Park Kitchen, Miramar

When practicing walking meditation, aim to stroll along the beach slowly. The intention is to feel every footstep, and being shoeless on the beach is great for this. 

We will walk for 40 minutes, then gather together for a brief conversation and head off for a drink afterwards.

Thich Nhat Hanh on how to walk

‘The first thing you do is to life your foot. Breathe in. Put your foot down in front of you, first your heel and then your toes. Breathe out. Feel your feet solid on the Earth. You have already arrived.’

As well as walking on the Earth, we need to care for it. Bring a yellow council rubbish bag or a green council recycling bag so you can pick up any rubbish you come across.
