Through various exercises, Mudra Space Awareness is the practice in the Shambhala Lineage centered on actively bringing attention to feeling in the body, and conversely refocusing attention away from thinking. This practice connects us to ourselves and the world. It is perfect for those of us who are told, or believe, that we "think too much," those of us who may feel cut off. Often we may find that thinking too much is detrimental to how we engage with others…

"Mindfulness" means nothing without embodiment. What are we mindful of? The Buddha's 'first foundation' for mindfulness was our body.
