SITTING the physical art of meditation

by Erika Berland

SITTING is a handbook for deepening your experience of the ancient posture of sitting meditation. Drawing on research in somatic education and experiential anatomy, many guided exercises offer you imagery you can use to release tension and stress, contemplations to increase your body awareness, tips for making gravity work for you rather than against you, physical and energetic methods for relating with the systems in your body, and much more - including ways to bring your new awareness into daily life.
