The theme of this 6-week series will be meditations sensing the body. It’s hard to meditate without your body though I have noticed how easy it is to stay in the head, as if the body didn’t exist!
Our bodies carry history – from our life experience and genetic inheritance – and yet they are always only ever in the present moment. Our body becomes a portal to being present. How aware are we of our body and all the signals it is giving us? Using the body as a focus for meditation practice can helps us train our focus, listen to hidden messengers, attune ourselves to what we need and explore the very nature of who we think we are. And it can simply be refreshing!
We will create a space together for experiential inquiry into levels of sensing the body through meditation. We’ll work through different levels, including the feeling of inner sanctuary, the invitation of the body and breath into recognising the present moment, the qualities of being the witness, and the stillness of sensing into unchanging awareness. You’ll be challenged to take each inquiry into your week - to bring meditation into the midst of your daily life.
All you need to do is sign into Zoom at 7.00 am. You can have your camera off and I lead us through a 30-minute meditation. And off we head into our week.
Add your details to the registration form below and you'll receive an email straight away containing the Zoom access details we'll use for all 6 sessions.
I'll also send you an email after each session with an inquiry for the week and a link to the recording of the meditation.
There is no cost for these sessions and instead I ask, if you are able, that you make a donation to a charity. It’s hard to choose a charity right now. A charity that touched my heart through a personal connection is the Linda Norgrove Foundation – they are not claiming to change the world, they are simply offering what they can for young women and families in Afghanistan.
Or perhaps you prefer a different charity.
