Week 11, Day 3: Jnana Mudra Meditation
To begin, find a comfortable posture for meditation.
It may be helpful to set a timer for 10-15 minutes for this practice.
Place your hands on your knees in Jnana mudra, with your palms facing up. Join the tip of the index finger and thumb together. The remaining three fingers are kept straight and extended.
Try to hold this mudra for the entire meditation practice.
Scan your body for any areas of tension or tightness. Pay special attention to any tightness in your neck, mouth, and jaw area.
Begin to feel your body and mind relax as you deepen your breath.
With each breath feel sense of serenity wave through the body.
