Meditation: Relaxing Back into Living Presence
2019-02-13 Meditation: Relaxing Back into Living Presence 18:54
Tara Brach
When we are lost in thoughts our mind contracts, our body tightens and we disconnect from true openheartedness. The pathway home is through “relaxing back” and reopening our attention to our senses, relaxing through our body, and gently contacting the felt sense in our heart. By repeatedly relaxing back, we become increasingly familiar with the vibrancy, tenderness and openness of true presence. “It’s from a relaxed presence that we can most feel the tenderness of our hearts."
