The Pleasures of Artistic Walking Sticks and Canes
One of the best ways to renew our inner peace is through regular walks. A simple walking stick or cane can be our best companion, an extension of ourselves, connecting all parts of our body in healing ways.
A walking stick is a meditation object - there is a subtle, almost subconscious comfort given to us by the feel of its movement, weight and balance as we walk. The use of a hiking staff allows the arms and shoulders to bear some of the stresses on the lower body joints and makes climbing and descending easier.
Using the arms involves more of the body in walking movement and makes it more enjoyable. Through this effortless harmonization we open up clear inner space for new ideas and insights.
