One of the practices you’ll be asked to engage with, is one in which you release attachment to the physical self and its tangible weight. According to this practice, one finds center by first releasing all attachment to boundaries and edge. The internal line, or the center of gravity is found through an erasure of static outlines of the self and the space it takes up. Take deep breaths, and allow yourself to be grounded in your trust for the breath.
