Mindfulness and the Body

Can you hear what your body is saying?

“I’m very interested in noticing what I’m feeling … getting out of my head”

Clothing designer and entrepreneur Eileen Fisher shares how paying attention to what is happening in her body is helping her overcome her shyness and show up differently in her life and work.

    I find the opposite happens to me. I am overly aware of my body to the point that I touch a bit on hypochondria. I too am shy so nervousness tends to reflect physically for me. It takes mindful thinking to relax my body so I can in turn tune into other things better with my mind.

    I really appreciate Eileen asking these questions and sharing what she is discovering about mindfulness. This, to me, is an important part of what makes life meaningful, the curious inquiry into the soul. I have watched all the videos with the mindfulness masters, and the embodiment series looks exciting too. Thank you so much! Wish I was in the New York area to take part in some of the workshops.

    I so understand this– what I call ‘zoning out.’ Unfortunately it can happen to me as not listening fully to another person speaking. I am practicing Taoism and have become aware of myself not listening and switch to listening instead at a deeper level—taking in every nuance of what the speaker is saying. I also find that everything speaks including my own body so that the little tweaks of pain that crop up from time to time are “asking” me to listen. I in turn I speak to the pain through movement and stretching and the pain (now that it’s been acknowledged and listened to)— dissipates into silence.
