Live Life with Full Attention - Week Two - MINDFULNESS OF THE BODY AND ITS MOVEMENTS
Wednesday 5 July 2023 7pm – 9:15pm
In our culture we have a habit of ‘living in our heads’ with a marked tendency to rationalize, ruminate, abstract and complicate.
If we are always in our heads, we may not even feel much of our body, so that, eventually, we can become alienated from it which then leads us to spend even more time in our heads!
So, this week. we are turning to the body and exploring the first of the Buddha’s four spheres of mindfulness: mindfulness of the body and its movements. This can help us to calm the busy mind and can be an effective antidote to stress and anxiety. Body awareness also makes us feel more truly alive and vital. It helps to increase our energy as we are no longer constantly pre-occupied with thinking and worrying and commentating on everything around us.
As we progress through this course we are aiming to see mind and body as interconnected. Each depending on the other, each influencing the other.
