Basic Sequence

In this meditation, we explore cultivating mindfulness through the various experiences that move through our awareness.

Let's start by finding a comfortable posture. This could be sitting, standing or lying down. And we'll take a deep breath to settle in. In through the nose. Slowly out through the mouth.

Inviting the jaw to soften. The shoulders and the belly. As the body starts to settle in, the breath can fall back into its natural rhythm. Just notice what it's like to settle into stillness. Not needing to be anywhere right now and not needing to fix anything.

Just feeling into what it's like to be you in this moment. Relaxing into yourself. Letting go of the thoughts about who you should be, what you should be doing. You can just put a pause on that for now, and feel into this very simple by big moment of being alive. Just being you.

And you can let the breath connect you to this moment of your life a little more deeply. Even if you've focused on the breath many times before, what's it like to feel it as if for the first time? If the mind wanders off, you can notice that as if for the first time. The miracle of being able to think. You can even look at it with awe. Oh wow, a thought.

And then back to this breath. Nowhere you need to get, no better version of yourself you need to become. Just deepening your presence into yourself, into this moment. So just start to reorient yourself back to the space around you. And when it feels okay, you can open your eyes again.

Great job. Take as much time as you need to be still before transitioning. Have a great day. Thank you for your practice and take care.
