sway yourself into stillness

You know how baby's like being rocked to sleep? Most adults find rocking, or swaying, pretty darn soothing, too.

What’s in this episode?

"Sway to Center" meditation uses a simple swaying motion to ease into a simple internal awareness of "center" (a vertical central column this time) and find focus.


How can you use this practice?

I like starting with the sway when I already feel relaxed --too relaxed to want to sit up and meditate! And, on the flip side, I find it's a good way to ease into "calming down" your mind -- it's like preparing your brain to quiet by creating a comfortable steadiness in the body... through motion.

Give it a try the next time you just want a hug from your meditation practice.

Try it out when you're ready
