Take 5 - Being Present
Instructions for "Being Present":
If you've never done a guided meditation before, here's an opportunity to start! This introductory practice is about getting used to focusing your attention, noticing the it has strayed, and bringing it gently back. If you have been doing the Weekly Minute, then this is all stuff you've done before, but this time, you'll have my voice to remind you!
*Practice adapted from "Sitting Together" - Pollak, Pedulla, & Siegel
"Through the development of concentration the mind becomes "less fragile and susceptible to extremes. It becomes steady and balanced—able to receive the variety of experiences and impressions that come to us in life without feeling overwhelmed or burdened." - Christina Feldman
