Today we are pleased to bring you another transcribed preview from Joe Loizzo, The Body Wheel (part I). These guided meditations recorded by Dr. Joe Loizzo are meant to support all four horizons of contemplative learning and meditative practice that make up the gradual path to freedom and happiness taught in the Nalanda tradition.
Lie down. Just lie there. Just feel the ground, feel the mattress, feel the sofa supporting you. And we're going to do a body scan to deepen mindfulness on the body and on the breath. So begin by focusing on your left foot and your big toe, and just be aware of it. You can wiggle it. Be aware what's standing there powerfully, how much weight it supports guiding you through your paces in the day.
And be aware of the other toes, and how they line up there on the edge of your foot. Feel the sole of your foot, the balls of your foot, where you support so much weight and around the arch to the heel. Be aware of how much tension there can be stored in those little muscles that support your body through the day, and try and let it go.
