Stand and close your eyes. Notice the surface beneath your feet and how your body minutely adjusts its balance. Notice where your weight is falling through your feet. Sense how gravity is pulling you gently towards the center of the earth.
Shift your awareness to the surface of your face. What kind of light do you feel on your skin? What air movement do you feel? Notice your breath‘s movement as air passes through the lips and nostrils and fills the lungs, then passes back from the body – warmer and a bit more moist. Watch the movement of your breath rise and fall in your torso.
Once you have fully arrived, close your eyes and turn to face north. Open your eyes – how did you determine where North was? Consider your strategies for orienting yourself in this place.
Close your eyes again and turn to face your home. This is defined in any way you would like – where you are, where you were born, where your ancestors are from. Open your eyes and noticed the direction you face and the paths that have brought you to this place.
Close your eyes again. Listen to a nearby sound. Even one inside your body. Take several minutes to fully listen to the sound. Then listen to the farthest away sound that you can hear – listen fully. Imagine the space between the near and the far sounds. What is in that space? Can you measure the distance? What does that space feel like?
Open your eyes. Look at an object quite close to you. Notice as many details as possible – color, shape, texture. How long has it been there? How long will it remain? What do you know and not know about it? Then look at a very far away object and observe the same details. Sense the space between the objects – what is there? What does it feel like?
Start to notice movement and let it begin to move you through space – responding to your own movement or simply moving towards or away from movements, sounds, objects. Fully inhabit your movement in this place.
