This Walking and Labelling Meditation introduces 'Noting' or 'Labelling' practices into the walking meditation training.Noting or labelling practice was developed by Mahasi Sayadaw, a Burmese Theravada Buddhist monk and meditation master who had a significant impact on the teaching of Vipassana (Insight) meditation in the West and throughout Asia.Labelling practice brings a number of benefits:
It provides a relatively frictionless focus for a distracted mind which is calming and relaxing.
It helps us to become more aware of our present moment sensory experience which is particularly useful with walking meditation.
It helps us to identify and separate all of the individual experiences (the phenomena) that we experience. This separation is critical in helping us to learn how to work with internal phenomena such as emotion and thought.
