Coming more into my body

The problem isn’t that we have bodies; the problem is that we’re not living in them.”

~Geneen Roth

Most of us “hover” outside our bodies, “seeing” it almost aerially rather than being in our feet, legs, hands, arms, and feeling them touching the ground, or chair, feeling the sensations of breeze on our skin. Eckart Tolle encourages feeling into in the body as a vehicle to the Present Moment. I like to take it in another direction as well, practicing sensing into and out from my stomach, or heart, lungs, and other areas and organs. These practices ground us in our bodies, our lives, in the Present Moment, connect us to our bodies, and remind us we are its guardian, its keeper.
