The Secret Life of the Body: Mudras- Day 8

MUDRA DATABASE

Day 8: 

Prompt for today: What is True for You with a Three or Four-fingered Mudra?

You explored yesterday what two fingers to the thumb is like.

Now. Look through the mudra database of 35 Mudras for those that combine three or four fingers touching the thumb.

Then, once you’ve chosen your three or four-fingered mudra, combine what you know about each of the individual fingers/elements. DON’T HOLD THE MUDRA YET.

Just like yesterday, record somehow– jot it down in your journal, for example– what you THINK the mudra will feel like/ do.

Then, warm up your hands and hold your three or four-fingered mudra for five minutes at least.

Notice what unfolds.

Theoretically, the mudras get more complex as more fingers connect to the thumb, but is this true for you in practice? Perhaps you find three or more fingers quite coherent and manageable.

Record what actually happens in your felt experience of holding the mudra.

Differences?

Same?

What else?
