Sitting: The Physical Art of Meditation by Erika Berland
Sitting: the Physical Art of Meditation by Erika Berland

Sitting is a handbook for deepening your experience of the ancient posture of sitting meditation. Drawing on research in somatic education and experiential anatomy, many guided exercises offer you imagery you can use to release tension and stress, contemplations to increase your body awareness, tips for making gravity work for you rather than against you, physical and energetic methods for relating with the systems in your body, and much more—including ways to bring your new awareness into daily life.

Erika Berland has been guiding meditators for more than 25 years. An early student of Chögyam Trungpa, she is a senior teacher in the Shambhala Buddhist lineage. A pioneer in somatic movement education, she is a founding faculty member of the MFA Theater: Contemporary Performance program at Naropa University, where she integrates meditation practice and view with performance techniques.
