In this brief 10-minute practice, Dr. McLeod guides us through bringing mindful awareness to our body's and ultimately our breath- two parts of our experience we rarely attend to but are always supporting us.
In this mindfulness practice we challenge the usual response to difficulty by turning toward instead of away from suffering. The intention here is to become curious about what we have to learn from discomfort
Here, we explore a longer seated mindfulness practice. This practice can be used for more experienced meditators to anchor the attention with the body and breath. There may be an increased sense of calm and relaxation during or following this practice, though that is not the explicit intention. Rather, it is to be with what is.
