Guided Standing Meditation

by Friends of Godwin

Please stand up slowly, knowing that you are going to stand and observing the intention to stand.

Now just feel what it is to stand. Feel the different sensations, the different movements in your body.

If you are experiencing any unpleasant sensations, painful sensations in the body, just know them and just be open to them, just say okay to them. And if you are experiencing any pleasant sensations in the body, just know that you are having pleasant sensations.

Try to feel every part of your body, the different sensations, the different movements in your body. And learn to feel friendly, gentle and kind to your body.

When thoughts come, learn to let go of them and come back to the body. Use your body to experience the present moment, the here and the now.

Learn to feel the body rather than think about the body; please see the difference. And just feel what it is to stand completely still.

Learn to gently let go of the thought and come back to your body. To be in the present with the help of your body, with the feelings, the sensations, the different movements. Finding the sensations and the feelings in the body more interesting than your thoughts.
