Mindfulness of the body is the foundation of the meditative journey. By bringing our awareness into the body and using the breath as a vehicle for exploration, we begin to awaken to the dynamic aspect of thoughts, sensations, and emotions that arise constantly within our immediate experience. As we become more familiar with ourselves in this way, we can begin to relax into this natural process and develop a deep and abiding appreciation for all the aspects of ourselves, others, and the world.
The following practices provide an entry point into this meditative journey and are the foundation for all of the subsequent practices offered through Dharma Ocean.
