Join Scott Shute for an in-depth discussion in this video Body scan practice, part of Mindful Meditations for Work and Life.
- [Instructor] I invite you to find … a comfortable but alert position. … (soft waves crashing) … Go ahead, and allow your eyes to comfortably close, … and just start to let your breath extend, … relaxing your belly, softening your mind, … and feel the support beneath you, … and let it take your weight. … Start to become aware of the sounds around you. … Just let them be there. … Notice the light, and the shade, … the air touching the surface of your body. … Sense the sky above, … and the horizons stretching all the way around you, … the earth below supporting you. … Allow your mind to empty … what it no longer needs to hold onto, … and let it go. … Let it flow out and away. … Allow your body to release what no longer needs to hold onto … and let it go, flow out and away, … and allow yourself to arrive in this moment, in the present, … and bring your energy, your attention to your center, … and ground yourself in this moment right here. … Begin to sense the space around you. … Become aware of the rise, and the fall of your breath. …
