This mediation would like to meet the listener with where they are at, hopefully facilitating an experience that is accessible also to those of us who have difficulty saying "no" in our daily existence for whatever reason (trauma, structural oppression, people pleasing, etc), and finding embodied supports for us in this process.
Connecting to the No within’ is a guided meditation which attempts to bridge the listener and the confidence and clarity that many "no's" require. We move through first connecting to the body then to a moment of personal recent experience when we had the desire to say no but found it difficult, and finding where those catalyse in the body, then to larger social moments of saying no (to reject oppressive conditions, to push back against injustice, to protect others etc). This mediation would like to meet the listener with where they are at, hopefully facilitating an experience that is accessible also to those of us who have difficulty saying no in our daily existence for whatever reason (trauma, structural oppression, people pleasing, etc), and finding embodied supports for us in this process.
Practical information: This meditation is best to do in a space where you can be comfortable and at ease, in anyway you'd like to position your body. You can do it in a room alone or with headphones, or outside with headphones on.
Duration: around 15 minutes.
The guided meditation is in English.
