Sati - the quality that allows remembering; different types of bodies we can experience inwardly through mindfulness of our physical senses and the mind; cultivating feelings from honesty, calm, patience and metta/ loving kindness - cultivating the citta/ heart; four places to live in a complete practice; wise attention; what do I feel/ feel like? Sankharas or energies / vitalities in the body; feeing oneself from the trap of the senses using the body of the breathing ; what knows how to breathe? Cultivating the experience of anapanasati - purifying through breathing. Discovering and working with tensions in the body - widen and soften. Breathing calm and patience into the body, nursing the body.
