We are all naturally endowed with intuition and skills that enable us to find our purpose, increase our well-being, and navigate our place in the world. These skills include gratitude, compassion, joy, and our focus during this challenge, awe.
The Greek philosopher Protagoras believed that our capacity for awe is our defining strength, it is the engine of creativity, discovery, purpose and health. We can find awe in many places, in listening to music, thinking about inspiring people, in contemplation and mindfulness. My favorite approach to cultivating awe is walking.
This week's challenge prompt is going for an AWE walk.
An awe walk is a walk where your sole task is to encounter something that amazes and transcends, be it big or small. I look for awe walks during my work day, with my loves (aka my bf and fur babies) at night, and my favorite is when nature is involved. Awe walks can be done in any setting, be it rural or urban, you can find moments of awe if you just pay attention and use the your natural skills and intuition.
Below is a short guided AWE WALK MEDIATION to assist you in capturing your transcendent moments during your walks this week.
