What are anchors? The dictionary defines an anchor as something that is the source of security or stability. I’m discussing using things that occur in the world as reminders to bring your attention back to the moment, or back to awareness.
Examples of anchors are things like:
Going through doorways.
When we walk somewhere.
When we listen to people.
Why use anchors? It is a way to bring stillness into the everyday experience. Many people learn to meditate on a seat, but have difficulty bringing that peace into the world they live in. Using anchors is the beginning of that practice.
Stillness is available anytime. Use anchors to learn that truth.[audio:https://s3.amazonaws.com/robscott-audio/UsingAnchors.mp3]
