Take a break and boost your mood with this 30-minute mindful walking meditation put on by Venture Cafè and District Hall for entrepreneurs.

This mindful walking meditation will begin outside of District Hall at the 75 Northern Avenue entrance (next to Gather Restaurant).

This will be a mindful, quiet walk, that will take place outdoors around Seaport while focusing on our senses. Mindful walking simply means walking while being aware of each step and of our breath. It can be practiced anywhere, whether you are alone in nature or with others in a crowded city. Mindful walking allows us to be aware of the pleasure of walking. We can keep our steps slow, relaxed, and calm. There is no rush, no place to get to, no hurry. Mindful walking can release our worries, anxiety, and tension, and help bring peace into our body and mind.

During the walk we will watch our breath and bring awareness to the activity of walking in nature and outside. A mindful walking meditation gives us an opportunity to gather our awareness which so often becomes distracted or even stuck when the mind is left to its own devices. Whether moving between floors of a building, on a city street, or in the woods, it is an opportunity to guide ourselves out of the distracted autopilot we live in throughout so much of our day.

Please arrive on-time. Leave your cellphones at your desks (or in your pockets on airplane mode). Dress warm.
