Lie on your back with your feet between 12 and 18 inches apart, arms at your sides a few inches away from the torso with the palms up. Surrender the full weight of the body to gravity. Let the earth fully support the body. This is one of the four major meditation postures taught by the Buddha. Spend some time resting your awareness on your breath, wherever it is that you feel it in the body. Letting go of any tendency to manipulate it, simply know an in-breath as an in-breath, an out-breath as an out-breath. Scan the body. Is it fully released or still holding tension? When the mind wanders, gently-free of irritation and judgment-bring it back to the breath and the body.
