Mindfulness and connecting with our senses | OMINDFULNESS

Posted on Posted in Events, General, Guided meditation, Meditation, Mindfulness, Type a

We often start out with an eating meditation in MBSR where the first thing we do is not sort of sit like a statue in the British Museum or something like that.  Although we do sit in sitting meditation, quiet stillness.  But we’ll hand out raisins and we’ll eat two raisins and we’ll take maybe twenty minutes to do it.  So we’ll take the first raisin and just, maybe close our eyes and feel in our fingers, just one raisin in our hand.  And feel it, maybe feel the weight of it, maybe, just all the ridges and troughs and valleys in the raisin.  That’s a sense.  And we can come to that sense, literally and metaphorically, we say, “come to our senses”

    up something new from right here. I did however
    expertise a few technical points using this web site, since I experienced
    to reload the site lots of times previous to I could get it to load properly.

    loading instances times will often affect your placement in google and could
    damage your high-quality score if advertising and marketing with Adwords.

    Ensure that you update this again soon.

  22. What you said was very logical. But, think on this, what if you typed a
    catchier post title? I am not suggesting your content is not good., however what if you added a title that makes
    people want more? I mean Mindfulness and connecting with our senses | OMINDFULNESS – Omindfulness is kinda boring.
    You should look at Yahoo’s home page and see how they
    write news titles to get viewers to click. You might add a video or a
    related pic or two to grab people excited about everything’ve written. In my opinion, it would bring your website a little livelier.
