Mindful Influence ~ Creating conscious moments

Guided Mindfulness Body Scan

Leave a comment

Today I am going to guide you through a mindfulness body scan.  I wrote a previous blog post about the body scan (Falling Awake) and encourage you to read this blog post.  The body scan is a meditation to bring awareness to different areas of the body.  For me it is about a mind-body connection and integrating different areas of my body with my breath.

A body scan can range anywhere from about 10 minutes to about 60 minutes.  I usually do a mindfulness body scan meditation about 2-4 times a week.

I prefer to lay on my back on the floor, but this meditation may also be done seated with good posture.  Please let me know your thought and feelings after you do the body scan meditation.
