Home Practice

1/ This week I would like you to alternate the body scan practice we have been doing with a lying down yoga practice. By now with the body scan you will be familiar with a guided practice that works better for you and I recommend staying with that one.  Click here to hear the one from Rebecca Crane I have linked before, while below is the one from Jon Kabat Zinn some of you have also been using.

There are more here as well.

2/ The lying down yoga practice I would like you to follow is here


3/ Complete the unpleasant events table and/ or use the hot cross bun diagram to help you unpack your pleasant experiences. Digital links to these if you want another copy are below

home practice Hot cross bun

4/ The step breathing space is a marvellous way of bridging formal practice and your daily life. It is definitely what I would call a portable practice. Here is a lovely guided version of it if you wish to use from Mark Williams

4/ also do keep if you can your Mindfulness Journal or maybe using this simple table if you prefer. Practice Record sheet 

5/ A written guide to starting a sitting practice is here . Sitting mindfulness practice checklist

6/ Here is a digital copy of the poem by Portia Nelson I read at the end of the session. Autobiography in Five Chapters poem

I am looking forward to hearing all about it next Tuesday 🙂
