Standing Meditation

Mindfulness Meditations for YOU 
during Covid-19

“Standing Meditation”
 
A famous teacher once said:
 
“The bad news is we are falling…
The good news is there’s no ground.”
 
I don’t know about you, but this feels about right. There is a sense of groundlessness and uncertainty. Things keep changing. I feel it in my bones. 
 
Fortunately, this is precisely where our mindfulness practice can be a resource. 
 
So, find a standing posture. The feet are a hip width apart. The toes are pointing forward. You may rock back and forth on the feet to find your balance. Your hands are at your side. The jaw is relaxed. The ears are over the shoulders. Your knees are slightly bent.  Tucking in the hips—the sensation of squeezing your butt cheeks together as you were holding a quarter between them.
 
See if it is possible to relax your body in this standing posture. 
 
Can you relax the body just 5%?
 
If you are an overachiever 6%, but no more.
Continue to relax the body.
 
Implementation
 
Your mission today is to practice standing meditation 3x today. 
 
(And, don’t forget the moving of the corner of the lips upward!)
