Focusing on the Present Moment
Through tuning into the present moment through simple techniques such as breath awareness, full body awareness, and compassionate practice, we gain a sense of the peaceful stillness that rests beneath all of our movements (both mental and physical). This peaceful meditation is a great way to begin relating to our emotions, our thoughts, and our physical experience of the world in new ways, helping us to ease whatever stress or tension we may be carrying. The more consistently we practice, the more profound the positive implications will be.
