At the beginning of a new year, it's tempting to feel full of anticipation about the change we want to see in our lives. It's also easy to berate ourselves for the things we haven't yet done in life. This practice invites you to gradually and gently come into a resting place and be at ease in your body.
The practice is in 3 parts:
1. Paradoxical stretching: notcing places of tension, exaggerating that tension, then slowly unraveling.
2. Tuning into how different layers of your experience feel.
3. Meditation: a short breath-focused meditation on anticipation and regret.
