Meditation and the Words of Sensation- Presented by Modern and Mindful

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

What does the term "comfort" mean to you? Pain? Surrender? Growth?

Our daily lives our simply overcharged with words. They are everywhere at all times. They make up the format for many of our thoughts and the descriptions of our lives, yet how familiar are we with the layers of impact that is carried by the words that we think, say, and string together?

"Comfort" is on one hand, just a term used to describe a generalized state of sensation that we have all learned to relate to on some level. However, how often have you been able to drop the idea of what comfort feels like, and simply experience it for yourself? 

In this session, we will briefly discuss one of the largest barriers that exists in a typical meditation practice (the cage of definition) with the hopes that we can create an atmosphere of experiencing versus defining. We will then settle into a deep body scan meditation that will drive us into some different levels of sensation within the body so that we may come to know them from an authentic place, free from generalized descriptions. It can be difficult, and it is powerfully rewarding! We will then, debrief and share some insight from our experiences.
