Kinhin (Walking Meditation) Postures

Sobun Katherine Thanas

During walking meditation, hands may be held at the sides, as shown in the image to the left, or clasped behind the back as shown to the right.

Find a hand posture that maximizes comfort and also allows for as much stillness as possible while walking.
