This week’s podcast episode is a continuation of these mini “masterclasses” in mindfulness I’m doing from October through the end of December. Mindfulness is a practice to help get you out of your head (where we tend to overthink, over-rationalize, over-analyze almost everything!) and get into your body where you can not only get into the here and now, but where you can learn to embody your experience and trust your intuition. Our Western culture socializes us to believe logic and reason, and while that’s helpful, it often serves to dismiss the message the body is telling us, often taking us out of alignment and into cognitive dissonance (where you think one thing, but feel another). This episode covers four different areas of body awareness as it relates to mindfulness – mindful movement, sensations, intuition and the mind/body connection.
