Strengthening groundedness and stability

Option 1: Short Silences

Option 2: Long Silences

Groundedness and stability

Particularly in times of danger, when the outside world demands our attention and external stimuli such as news feeds are overwhelming, our sense of self, embodiment, and presence can be significantly diminished.

In this practice, you bring your attention back to yourself. You strengthen your sense of physical existence, groundedness, and stability by focusing on your body—its substance, weight, and contact with the ground.

A strong sense of your own physical presence is vital for facilitating both physical and mental slow-down and rest.
