We are doing a great book review on “How To Meditate:” by Pema Chodron.
As we prepare to meditate we need some basic tools. Today we will review more in depth preparing our paths so that we can begin.
Six Points Of Posture:
Seat-Find a stable base
Hands- Resting them on your thighs (resting the mind mudra)
Torso- Upright but relaxed, visualize a straight line from the top of your head to the cushion underneath you
Eyes-Eyes open to further wakefulness
Face- Mouth slightly open to relax the face and neck
Legs- Crossed comfortably in front of you
Remember to do a full body scan. Stand up and take a deep inhale and exhale. Begin to scan through each part of your body observing how each area feels in the present.
Start with your feet. (Page #27 of the book)
If you are just joining us please go back to Part #1 and watch the video.
