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”

    Thanks!
