Transcript

Thank you, mark, you.


So thank you Mark. And, uh, thank you for inviting me to this lovely, lovely place. So we've introduced ourselves to each other. Um, now why don't we introduce ourselves to ourselves in a one minute sitting. So let's just sit for coming to sit for one minute. And if you wish, you can close your eyes or lower your gaze. 


And simply stepping inside. So noticing what's going on in mind and body right now, and sort of checking in with yourself and sort of coming home, noticing the weight of the body on the chair, the feet on the floor, and allowing yourself to be exactly as you are, like meeting an old friend.
