When was the last time you connected with nature, paused to take note of your surroundings, or admired a simple sunrise? The hurried way by which we often live our lives can distract us from the beauty of the natural world that surrounds us. Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee and Hilary Hart suggest that the simple practice of walking can help reconnect us to the web of life, and the soul-awakening moments it offers. "Nature is cyclic and rhythmic, and walking - when we are not focused on where we are going - attunes us to this non-linear reality." Read on to learn more about a daily walking practice the authors suggest, and its calming effects on the body and mind.
