Embodied Meditation is a practice that explores mindfulness through yogic movement and breath, and the non-dual philosophies of India through the sensations of the body.
I often precede each session with a 5 minute talk to give perspective and texture to the practice. This morning, we explored the power of awareness.
In this session, I am guiding us through a morning yoga practice of Embodied Mediation in celebration of our edges.. We contemplate the nature of divinity. The edges in our body allow awareness to arise. Awareness, consciousness and divinity are terms used interchangeably to translate the Sanskrit term "chit".
In this session, we move through a number of postures, using them to explore our edges. We breathe light into them and experience how breath constantly joins yin and yang, heaven and earth, mother and father, as well as inner and outer spaces.
We learn how to feel the impulse of consciousness as it causes us to move, we experience the butterfly effect. Practicing mindfulness through the sensations of the body, is as effective as practices relying on the sensations of the mind.
The session is divided into several sections so that you can revisit the practices in a way that works best for you.
