Body scan

The body scan is a core tool in developing calm and mindful awareness. By tuning in to tensions in the body, this acts as a early warning system for stress arising, giving us a moment which to step back and get perspective.

Use this 10 minute guided practice, to listen to now or to download for later use (a great thing to do at bedtime).
