Learning to Float, from Mindful Parent, Mindful Child


I was thinking about swim teachers and the backwards law, or the law of reverse effect – and about how sometimes, the harder we try, the less likely we are to succeed. I was curious whether the instructions swim teachers use to teach people to float are similar to the instructions meditation teachers use to teach people to meditate.  

So, I typed “how to float” into a search engine and guess what. I found a set of clear, succinct instructions that could have as easily have been for meditators as swimmers.   Listen to them below, in one of thirty, brief guided meditations for busy grownups.
