Walking Around, Open-Eyed Compassion Meditation

Walking around or open-eyed meditation can be done anywhere/anytime. It is a simple and playful way to return to your moment to moment experience. 

Compassion Practices from Sally Kempton: 

  • “Whenever you think of it, make a point of breathing in compassion and breathing compassion out into the environment. Notice the energy that is generated when you do this. Recognize that compassion is a natural energy in the universe. You don’t have to create or invent it.”
  • “When you feel stressed, anxious, worried, angry, or annoyed, or when you notice that you’re not at your best, ask yourself ‘What would compassion do at this moment?’ How does your behavior change?”
