Asana Meditation – Day 1 It is a common misconception that meditation is a way to escape or check-out from physical reality. We would say that the contrary is true; that meditation is a way to check-in. It is full immersion into the now – and that includes the body, the mind and the spirit. As we effectively include our physical body in sittings, our meditations will immediately improve.
This week we will work with Asana, a sanskrit word that refers to one’s sitting position. We would extend that to include one’s posture in life. Our physical body is a resource and it provides us with much information on our state of being. The inner reflects the outer.
