Focus On The Body
6 Lectures 08:58

Awareness is understanding. There's a lot happening in your life and I was shocked when i found out that many decisions are made by what i call my "automatic pilot." I wanted to take back control and that's why i had to raise my awareness of the unconscious decisions and behaviour of mine. 

What is awareness and why it's so amazing?

Having a focus point helps to keep your mind focused, instead of flying off to who knows where. Many meditations use different kinds of focus points and I introduce you to several in this course.

Why is it important to ground yourself? With meditation you are trying to calm the mind, so it won't be able to distract you. By grounding yourself you will be more connected with the earth keeping your mind here instead of flying off to all kinds of thoughts, worries, fantasies and so on. 

How and why to ground yourself?
