Learning to bring an intentional awareness to relaxing is an important part of mindfulness practice. Sometimes, we spend so much time in our heads that it can become difficult to reconnect with our bodies. Often we prioritise our mind over our body; we heed what our busy (obsessed) mind wants to do, rather than listen to the messages coming from our body.

Relaxation practice helps us to learn to listen to our body. We offer care, gratitude, a space to rest and restore. We aim to connect deeply with our physical body. 

The meditation below lasts just over 40 minutes. For those who have less time, there is a bell that sounds half way through - you can use this as your timer if you want a shorter session. 

Q: Is it okay if I fall asleep?
