Come to our event on Saturday where we will learn to reconnect with our own bodies through a guided body-based mindful meditation. Kelsey will guide you through a body scan, as you place your attention on different areas of the body, feeling into sensation, temperature, tension and pressure. Just like our muscles get stronger with repetitive training, so too does our attention improve with practicing intentional placement. Body scan meditation is an opportunity to investigate moment-to-moment experiences of the body. By bringing awareness and acknowledgment to whatever you feel or sense in the body, this practice can be very helpful in working with stress, anxiety, and physical pain. Body scan meditations can be a powerful tool to reconnect us with our bodies and increase our capacity for interoception (the ability to sense internal states of the body) which inform our daily experiences and decision making.
As students in a busy, multi-faceted university world, we spend hours focusing on analyzing, theorizing, learning and deadlines. Allowing the mind time and space to focus on bodily sensations through body scanning can reveal where we hold tension, stress and anxiety in the body and can reconnect us with what our body needs to be well and functioning at its best.
This body scan meditation is open to and accessible for all - beginners included!
Yoga mats and refreshments will be provided. Please bring a lightweight blanket if you desire.
