What's your reason for meditating?

Today, I meditated as a way to transition between one type of activity and another. I wouldn't say it was to clear my head, but to be present in being me --rather than in doing stuff. A sort of palate cleanser between doings, if you will.

Different days, different years have different reasons. Maybe ask yourself: Why do you meditate? Why are you choosing to practice today?

What’s in this episode of Everyday Meditation?

  • Welcome + getting situated, with an invitation to consider "what's your reason for meditating?"
  • A little lead-in movement: Seated Cat/Cow
  • Breathing practice: Padadirsasana (hands under opposite armpits --I don't think it feels as weird as it might sound!)
  • Meditation technique (awareness kriya): Sat Yam
  • A little re-grounding movement: Seated forward fold

As always, I encourage you to make yourself at home in this practice: substitute, modify, do as you need to feel safe and present, including taking breaks!


Integration suggestion

After listening to the episode, perhaps check in: did you notice something that you want to carry with you? If yes, maybe jot it down in a notebook or record a voice memo to help you remember!
