In this week’s podcast, I wanted to offer some guidance on standing meditation. We tend to focus on sitting meditation, but there are three other postures: standing, walking, and laying down.
In standing meditation, the basic practice is to stand comfortably, feeling the sensations in your feet, the points of contact with the ground beneath you, and sensing the uprightness of the standing posture.
In this guided meditation, I invite you to leave your eyes open, though it’s also possible to practice standing meditation with the eyes closed.
Please excuse the sounds of me moving around the room towards the end of the meditation – I’d mindlessly left the bell at the other side of the room.
