Week Three - Embodying Presence: Connecting Mind & Body - 10 min mindful exercise

Posted On: Wednesday, June 01, 2016 Posted By: Diversity Office Tags: Mindfulness

THIS WEEK, WE INVITE YOU to practice a brief 2-5 minute body scan before getting out of bed in the morning. After the morning alarm sounds, see if you can stay for just a short while, creating some space to attend to the body as it wakes up – starting with the feet and slowly making your way up to the crown of the head – simply noticing with compassion all of the physical sensations that are present.
