Back of the Head Meditation

5 min - Practice


The inspiration for this meditation comes from an ancient yogic text, Shiva Samhita. Richards guides us in a subtle practice of withdrawing all of our awareness from the limbs and concentrating it into the base of the skull. We then gradually allow our consciousness to spread back into the body. Rest in the spaciousness that is you.

Very nice. I will be practicing this!
....can this be practised for an extended time? Like 20 minutes. Is it explained in Shiva Samhita the benefits of this practise? I know people like Yogananda were very interested on the attention to the medulla oblongata.....which I believe is same or very close to where we place attention in this practise?
