Somatic Meditation takes our body as the fundamental arena of meditation practice. Rather than trying to develop meditation through our our left-brain, thinking mind in a “top-down” process, as is the case with most contemporary approaches, Somatic Meditation involves a bottom-up process, wherein we connect with the inherent, self-existing wakefulness that is already present within the body itself. In contrast to conventional approaches that emphasize entry through the intentional thinking of the conscious mind and following conceptual instruction templates, Somatic Meditation develops a meditative consciousness that is accessed through the feelings, sensations, somatic intuition, and felt sense of the body itself. We are simply trying to tune into the basic awareness of the body.

The majority of these practices are done while lying down on the ground instead of the traditional sitting up meditation posture. They are a great way to relax the mind and embody and are ideal for both new and experienced meditation practiconers.
