Meditation for Focused Awareness

This meditation was co-created with a trauma surgeon to prepare and focus for surgery. It would be an effective preparation for anyone who uses their hands as “tools” for their work. The meditation is short enough to use in a moment’s notice. It was designed to be done successfully while standing in a busy environment with the eyes opened. It begins with dristhi for concentrated gaze, then uses breath observation and diaphragmatic breathing to balance the nervous system. It then combines breath centered awareness with imagery, using the mind screen at the brow point to ground and confidently connect the mind and hands.
