Take 5 - Touch Points
Instructions for "Touch Points":
This is the first of three 'anchoring' practices that we will explore over the coming weeks. Your anchor is the place of calm and stillness within you that you can return to whenever you feel you need it. Each person is different, and what works for you will be different from what works for another person. Try each of the guided practices over the next few weeks, and see what works best for you, then make your chosen practice a habit so you can find your anchor when you need it. :)
*Practice adapted from Pollak, Pedulla, & Siegel
"Since the body is always available as an object of meditation, becoming interested and curious about physical sensations is one of the easiest ways to come into the present moment. This practice can help us see the difference between direct experience and what we add on." - Pollak, Pedulla, & Siegel
