This is the seventh (of twelve) episodes of The Practically Mindful Moment podcast series. PMM’s are brief bits of featured information on concepts and tactics from Dr. Greg Sazima’s new book, Practical Mindfulness: A Physician’s No-Nonsense Guide to Meditation for Beginners (Mango Media, release date 1/19/2021).
Each PMM clocks in at a user-friendly ten minutes or so; just a brief tuning in, learning opportunity, and brief guided exercise in mindfulness. (And a quick, shameless plug for the book.)
In this episode, Dr. S reviews some useful, practical information on the “positional” aspects of sitting: cushions, chairs, where the feet can go, and the hands, and the eyes, and all that. The emphasis is on finding your own reproducible, comfortable but alert posture for meditation. The guided meditation that finishes the podcast puts those bits of information to use with a brief, guided practice.
