Suffering can sometimes literally stop us in our tracks, keeping us from fully participating in our own lives and the lives of those we love. Carolyn Scott Kortge’s discovery is that an important key to joyous re-engagement with the world can be to—just as literally—get moving. If you can learn to simply start a walking practice, you’re on the road to taking back your life. Kortge offers an eight-week program for navigating your way through life’s physical, emotional, and spiritual hard times, using the healing power of movement through walking for wellness.
Within the supportive framework of this eight-week program is a way to regain a sense of balance and order, even if you’re weighed down by the lethargy and loss of control that often accompany illness, depression, or trauma. You’ll discover how to link mental focus with physical movement to create healing periods of stress release. You’ll find ways to match your steps with meditation in a way that clears a path through confusion. You’ll also learn how to use walking to redirect mental focus away from fear or stress and toward peace and renewal. This book will truly help you keep moving forward, both in good times and in tough ones.
