Online MBCT/MBSR Lesson 3

Mindful Movement Discussion

Spend a few minutes reflecting on what this experience was like for you and then answer the following questions:

  1. Think about the difference in quality between the body sensations you experienced in this practice and in the body scan. How do they compare?
  3. Did you notice any particularly strong or uncomfortable sensations, and if so:
    • How did you respond to them?
    • What was it like keeping your attention focused on any feelings of discomfort or mild pain?
  5. What did you notice about how sensations changed as you were holding a posture? What about as you were moving between postures?
  7. Did your mind wander any less during this practice, in which you were more active/less still, then during the body scan and sitting meditation?
  9. Did you find it easier to pay attention to your experiences because the physical changes held your attention better?

Now play the video below and we'll discuss the Mindful Movement practice you just completed.
