Start by shifting your attention from your mind to your body.

We begin with a practice that takes attention away from our thoughts and returns our awareness to our bodies through somatic scanning. By settling into the sensations of our current state, we open the communication line between the mind and body and begin to regulate the nervous system. Feeling for sensations gives us clues for where emotional and physical energy is being stored.

Prepare yourself for this meditation by setting yourself up in a private, quiet and comfortable space. If possible, dim the lights or place something like a sleep mask or eye pillow over your eyes.

  • What sensations do you feel and where do you feel them? 
  • Are there emotions tied to the sensations?
