The Basic Guided Awareness is designed to do two things: take you deep inside and focus your attention The Basic Guided Awareness is designed to do two things: take you deep inside and focus your attention--not forcefully, but gently, on something you are very familiar with--your body.
When you ‘gaze softly’ with your awareness, your body becomes increasingly at ease and comfortable, you dissolve core tensions with your awareness, and your Mind quiets. You connect to your calm core.
Every time you do this gentle practice of Guided Awareness, going deeply into and through your body, you become more and more comfortable in your body and in your mind. Your tensions dissolve more easily, and your calm core expands so that it infuses all of the space within your body and your mind.
With practice, you naturally take that calmness with you back out beyond the precinct of your body/sanctuary, into all that you do on the outside. --not forcefully, but gently, on something you are very familiar with--your body.
