Most of us are constantly caught in our thoughts, worries and mental stresses. Body-based or somatic meditation is a technique for grounding our Life back where it belongs, in our flesh-and-blood experience. With yoga and practice outside, sitting meditation and lying-down practices, we find reliable methods of exiting the tread-mill of the thinking mind and entering a sustainable relationship with our somatic self.
