Day 29 : Body Awareness with Metta


Today’s practice invites us to notice the living, breathing being that is this body, to practice relaxing into our bodies in places we discover we have been holding tension, and explores the practice of heart breathing.  The practice closes with a Metta Blessing (a blessing of lovingkindness).
