Welcome to meditation in 2020! You may find that there is not much different than 2019 and you may find that you are open to new experiences and opportunities. Maybe there is a way to think about how meditation can support your intention for the year, and your truth. Our Verapose theme for the month of January is Truth.
As we have discussed, there are many paths to our own personal truth, to that collective consciousness that we as a studio are engaging with in this Year Long Meditation Challenge. Through meditation we have the opportunity to quiet the mind, and to find our own way to our personal truth. As some, if not many, of us have discovered, this place of discovery is not always easy or comfortable. It is however a beautiful journey. We have enjoyed so thoroughly this first 5 months of Meditation Challenge, and look forward to where else we can go, both inward and outward.
This month, we are exploring our meditation practice through a body scan. Through our use of scans of the body we can increase our own awareness of the Self (the Big S Self!). This awareness has unknowable benefits! Of course we know some 🙂 We know that this increased awareness connects us to our practice, makes us aware of our responses to stress, promotes our ability to return to rest and relaxation, and ultimately brings us closer or in contact with our own truth.
We will be completing a lovely two directional body scan as well as other body scan techniques this evening at our Monthly Meditation! It will be lovely 🙂
