Physical exercise is a fantastic way to clear one's mind and begin sorting through their spiritual priorities. Ilchi Lee has dubbed this practice of combining contemplative activities with athletic pursuits 'moving meditation,' and recommends it as an excellent, efficient way to establish a mind body balance in oneself.
Hiking is a particularly fabulous activity that individuals who are interested in practicing moving meditation should consider. This type of physical exercise is ideal for working through spiritual issues, as it combines body movement with the experience of nature. Individuals who embark on hikes through peaceful areas are sure to feel refreshed and relaxed afterwards.
An excellent location to consider hiking is Patagonia, a region that spans from Argentina to Chile. According to National Geographic, the Fitz Roy Trek is one of the best hikes on the planet and a challenging route that peace-seekers may be interested in trying.
The Fitz Roy Trek takes hikers through the villages of El Chalten, Laguna Torre and Laguna Electrico, as well as the Poincenot Camp. This 36-mile path travels through the mountains, past incredible gorges, high steppes, haunting beech forests, impressive waterfalls and gorgeous glaciers. Individuals who embark on this hike should be able to complete it over the course of four to seven days and are guaranteed to feel relaxed and spiritually healed upon completion.
The travel magazine suggests that peace-seekers travel to Patagonia during the months of February and March in order to have the best hiking experience. This particular time of the year is ideal for individuals who wish to have relaxing vacations, as it is considered the off-season and an unpopular time for tourists to visit. Patagonia is extremely beautiful during South America's autumn, however, and individuals may enjoy experiencing the region's beautiful fall weather while it is still mid-winter in the Northern Hemisphere.
