Instructions for "Being the Mountain":
This is the second of the three 'anchoring' practices that we are currently exploring in the Weekly Minute. An 'anchoring' practice is a technique that you find restores your balance when life is turbulent. Remember that each person is different, and what works for you will be different from what works for someone else. "Being the Mountain" is an excellent practice for those with anxiety, or anyone who is in a period of change. Try it and see how it works for you!
I'd love to hear how you're getting on, so leave a comment below. :)
