TEACHER: Stephanie DeBou
THEME: The 8 senses
MEDITATION: Wheel of awareness
INTERACTIVE: Mind your Peas and Cranberries
Where attention goes, neural firing flows, and neural connection grows. –Dr. Daniel J. Siegel
Steph: In Dan Siegel’s book “Aware” he introduces the concept of the “Wheel of Awareness,” a tool he claims will help introduce more well being in your life by helping you to focus and direct your awareness. In part 1, we’ll explore this wheel in a guided meditation on what Siegel refers to as the Eight Senses. Then in part 2, we’ll dive into one of the spokes of the wheel, working specifically with the sense of taste, and how we can cultivate more conscious eating by directing our focus to the very act.
