Minding Mind: Mindfulness for Everyday Living [Episode 6: The Body]
 

We are reminded in the Buddhist teachings of the preciousness of human birth, and more acutely reminded that the body is a vehicle for enlightenment. Yet many Western people have a negative image of their body obtained from religious dogma, exposure to Madison Avenue advertising or developmental experiences.

In the practice of mindfulness, we use the natural rhythm of the body, the breath, to ground and focus our awareness. Through the use of the body scan technique, we can “re-body” ourselves by experiencing the body without perceptive filters. We simply feel in to each part of the body with total acceptance, non-striving and pure presence.
