Sleeping in Savasana

My yoga journey

Walking meditation 

on April 11, 2017

We spent yesterday afternoon at Wat Pho, the temple of the reclining Buddha. It’s a beautiful place for many reasons and much calmer than other tourist places that I’d been to over the past few day. 

At the reverse of the statue there is a lovely opportunity for a movement meditation in the middle of the chaos that is central Bangkok. 

There are 108 bowls along the wall and for a donation you get a small tub with 108 coins in it. 

I took a step between putting each coin in the bowl and focused on my breath, counting the number I had done, and ignoring the rest of the people around me. 

There were two young boys ahead of us who weren’t going that fast with the help of their mother and I wasn’t in a rush. I had to mange my ego and temper when a lady came behind me and then actually walked into me repeatedly to try to make me go faster. She then overtook me but it annoyed me. I managed to clear it from my mind and focus on the second half of the coins and bowls. 

I really enjoyed it and I haven’t done enough moving meditation recently. It’s something that I’ll be trying again.
