Find a quiet place out in nature, a park is perfect, but a quiet street can work too. Choose a point about 100 yards away. Walk toward it slowly; one small step at a time. As you walk, allow yourself to feel each foot meeting the ground. Keep your eyes looking about five yards in front of you toward the ground. You may struggle at first with the slow pace. As you walk forward, observe your breath going in and out. Keep your attention on your breath and your feet. If any feelings arise (frustration, anxiety), simply observe them. Do not process the feeling, just notice it and let it go.

It is a celebration of the triumph of light over darkness, in the outer as well as the inner world; for it is a time to celebrate the awakening of our own inner light, the awakening of consciousness.
