(waves crashing) Hi there, nice to see you again. Let's continue to let our attention on the physical body hold us steady as we drop into subtler elements of ourselves. So, step one, be comfortable. Sit in a way that allows you to feel easy, grounded, expressive in the heart, and expansive up through the skull. Because we're gonna be letting our hands be the object of our meditation practice, put a little bit more attention right now on how you have your hands.

And unless palms down is supremely and absolutely the most comfortable position for you, try letting your palms turn up, resting on your thighs or knees, depending on how you're sitting. Eyes can now either close or find a resting spot. And allow your elbows to feel just a little bit heavier to help the tension in your shoulders ease. And just make sure you're in a spot, just fiddle a little bit and make sure you're in a spot that really feels supremely comfortable so your hands can really feel like they're supported. Nice.

And then so tenderly tune your attention, like move your mind, to your left hand. Particularly the left center point of the palm. And as you come into the left center point of the palm, when endeavoring to touch something subtler, essential to let the hand feel more sensitive, like you were touching something quite delicate. So allow the effort of the hand to ease. And it's much more a quality of receiving your attention in your hand.

Yes. The hand might start to feel fuller, like it's actually holding something. Which it is. It's holding your attention. And as we've been exploring where your tension goes, your prana, or life force, generally follows.

Okay. Now, so slowly, just tenderly and smoothly begin to let your attention move over to your right hand. Let the right hand feel receptive to you, sensitive to you, open to you. And so that as your attention moves into your right hand, there might be a feeling of a fullness. As the prana follows.

Yeah. Tenderly now move your attention back to your left hand. And as you come back to your left hand, feeling the center of that left palm, and also start to be aware of your fingers. And as you're aware of your fingers, be aware of the space in between your fingers. Be aware of what holds your left hand, the context of your left hand, the relationship.

Let yourself be interested in this. Tenderly, smoothly, sweetly come back over to the right hand. Let the right hand receive your attention. Be aware of the right fingers. Soften the joint of the thumb a little bit.

And be aware of the space in between the fingers, be aware of what holds your fingers. Maintain your connection to the right hand as you bring the left hand back into your field. The yogis have long referred to the hands as the motor organ of the heart. And so for our last minute and a half together, let your hands feel open, receptive, curious. And can you let your heart feel the same way?

Back of the heart wide. Front of the heart soft. Let the jaw be easy. Eyes kind. Open.

Non-grasping. Receptive. Available. If your eyes are closed, gently let them open. Thank you.
