Establish your space
Clear some room to move freely, ideally about 2×2 meters.
Make sure you can work without being disturbed (don’t forget to switch your phone to airplane mode!).
Collect essential materials
Prepare something to take notes with. If you intend to use an electronic device for this, make sure it’s not the same as the one you’re listening to the Recording to.
In addition, you might need some additional materials such as an actual sheet of paper and a pen (as part of the movement Exploration) or an object. This will be clearly indicated in each Preparation section of the Recording itself.
Prepare your mind
Remember that there is no specific outcome required. It is about your personal exploration. Don’t judge yourself if it is challenging to connect with the instructions. You don’t have to ‘get it right’, as there is no wrong. You are simply exploring an addition to your research toolbox.
You can choose to set an intention for the best outcome for you, when listening to a specific Recording. What do you hope to get from it?
Explore your responses to the tasks; should you get distracted or bored, make that part of your investigation too.
Arrive in your body
Arriving in your body is an important part of this work. Core Practice 1, Body Basics: Arriving, helps you to do this in a way that includes warming up our physical, sensorial and imaginal capacities. You know your body best, so if you feel you need more, or less, please amend according to your needs and available time frame. It could be one minute, or 10, or even a whole hour.
There is a very brief invitation in the Preparation section of each Recording, which will talk you through this.
