Attention tends to move around, but something often bubbles to the surface at the front of our awareness. Even if we’re trying to focus just on the breath, the attention tends to wander from one part of the body to the next.

In this mindfulness meditation audio practice from the Spirit Rock Meditation Center, I explore the power of opening out that spotlight of awareness to include all of the sensations around you so they appear as one powerful whole. I hope you try this practice at home, and think you’ll enjoy it!
