some thoughts on walking and gait analysis

Specificity does not imply accuracy. Anytime we examine a subject, I find it of great value to alternate between a microscopic view of detailed analysis, and a macroscopic view to give perspective and context. Here I share a few thoughts on walking. I have been taught numerous walking practices from different perspectives and with different intent: Buddhist, Daoist, Native American and bio-mechanical, with several variations of each.  And there are countless other walking practices which exist besides these. walking may be familiar, but it is far from mundane.
