April is Gratitude Month
Loving-Kindness Body Scan Meditation
The body scan is a powerful technique, which helps us to reestablish contact with the body, and it is effective for developing both concentration and flexibility of attention.
The intention of the Loving-Kindness Body Scan is to help us be more loving and kind to our bodies.
This includes sickness, physical aches and pains, cancer, arthritis, back pain, knee pain, old age, all the physical phenomena we experience.
Using the Loving-Kindness Body Scan, we meet each part of our bodies with great respect and gentleness as best we can.
Loving-kindness practice for your body is like taking an internal shower; it helps to remove some of the inner blockages to the body, and helps both the mind and body feel more at ease.
Meeting each body part with loving-kindness is a way to reconnect, and make friends, with your body.
