Conscious Walking™ is a dynamic walking meditation created by Mohanji and launched on International Yoga Day, 21 June 2015. The philosophy behind Conscious WalkingTM is rooted in ancient Vedic and Buddhist principles and practices. This simple yet very transformative technique is available free of cost and people can easily practice and adapt to the Conscious WalkingTM lifestyle regardless of age or gender. As with most of Mohanji’s techniques, the simplicity of the technique belies its immense transformative power.
Why Conscious Walking?
The eyes use up a great deal of energy from our system. An oscillating mind that travels between past and future, rarely stopping in the present consumes a huge amount of our energy.
The more energy we have in the present moment, the better quality of life we can achieve. When we walk unconsciously, letting our senses loose, we spend much more energy than usual.
However, in Conscious Walking TM, our eyes are locked down to one foot ahead of us, and our attention remains within our aura field, i.e. our energy field.
Even though we are walking, with our eyes locked within our energy field, the energy loss is reduced. When our energy circulates within our own energy field, we become totally energized and rejuvenated.
If properly done, a 30 minute Conscious WalkingTM practice is as effective as a 3 hour meditation.

No. Then, the attention will waver. This walk is a meditation. We can call it a dynamic
meditation because the body is in motion while we experience stillness of spine and eyes.
Any connection with another being will be a distraction to the practice.
A: Avoid talking while walking. It will result in distraction. This walk increases concentration,
self-control and presence. So, if you must talk or express something – stop, talk, and then
Conscious Walking TM should be done on stable grounds. Treadmill is not a stable ground, hence it is not suitable for Conscious Walking TM .
A: Conscious Walking TM will not exceed 30 minutes, because attention will waver beyond that period. Walking consciously several times a day is recommended, rather than walking for a longer time. So, water may not be needed while walking. You can drink water before your walk or after, otherwise attention will waver. Consider this a practice of meditation. During meditation, we don't drink water. Walking consciously is meditating.
A: Walk slowly. Walk with full awareness. Walk sufficiently slowly so that you do not lose focus.
A: Children from the age of 5 and above can do Conscious Walking TM .
A: Your aura expands to at least 1 foot around your physical body. When looking 1 foot ahead, the energy circulates within the aura field. If you look beyond, you are leaving your aura field. It would be good to practice it in parks and places where ground is even and predictable. Conscious Walking TM is not recommended while walking on streets and it can be dangerous. Also, looking ahead 4-5 feet is not part of Conscious Walking TM and will not give the effects and benefits of the technique.
