Mindfulness of Body

Resting on the sensations of the body

This mindfulness guided meditation is led by Anne Muhlethaler. 

This guided meditation is an invitation to learn to rest our attention on naturally occurring sensations in the body, ones that we don’t need to effort in creating. The breath is often chosen as the most natural anchor, yet other body sensations like feeling into body parts or connecting to sound scan are equally great as gateway into furthering our intimacy with the present moment.

In this short meditation, we explore first the concept of resting on our chosen homebase, then move into observation with curiosity, and how to come back to the homebase 

Breath is the bridge which connects life to consciousness, which unites your body to your thoughts. Whenever your mind becomes scattered, use your breath as the means to take hold of your mind again.” Thich Naht Hanh
