After settling and arriving through gentle movement you’ll be guided through a progressive body scan, explore softening, relaxing and letting go inside.

Moving your attention to an anchor of your choosing, you’ll sense what it means to let go of thoughts and moods and return to the here and now.

As the meditation progresses, you’ll deepen your inquiry into letting go by releasing all practices of ‘doing’ and investigate what it feels like to ‘be’ and rest in presence.
