“When we lose our connection to the body, we lose one of our most important capacities for mindfulness.
.
.
Right now, raise both of your arms out to the side.
.
.
Close your eyes, and bring your arms slowly together until your palms touch.
.
.
How were you able to know where your body was in space with your eyes closed?
.
.
We possess a natural sense known as proprioception, which is the ability to inwardly perceive the body’s spatial orientation in movement, moment by moment.
.
.
Although you may largely live in your head, you can always return home to the body, the vital sense of being with which you took your first breath.”
