#22 Meeting Difficulty with Ease and Presence in Sphinx Pose Guided Practice
Jul 16, 2020
Jennifer O'Sullivan & Sarah Jane Shangraw

In this episode, Jennifer offers guidance for creating space between a difficult stimulus and the response to it. Whether you are confronted by a challenging event or a triggering conversation, the prompts in this meditation can bring forward a more responsive — rather than reactive — inner attitude.

The setting for this guided practice is sphinx pose, chosen for being a relatively gentle, although not entirely neutral, shape. Postures can help us approximate uncomfortable situations so that we can practice how we respond to them. 

For more guidance on how how to practice this way, check out this article.
