This is a led kindly awareness meditation practice as taught at the City Lit and the West London Buddhist Centre. The purpose of the practice is to extend our awareness quite naturally beyond the boundaries of our own body, our own self, to explore our awareness of others, to enrich our own life with a deeper sense of life that is not our own life. We do this by engaging the amazing faculty we all have to conjure up another person in our own mind.
Find a posture you’ll be able to sustain fairly comfortably. Either lying down or sitting up. If sitting, it helps to tip the weight forward so that the legs are taking some of the weight from the spine. So if sitting on a chair, try raising the back legs a little. If sitting on the floor, sit on enough cushions so that your weight is not all bearing down on the bottom of the spine. Make sure your hands are supported.
