“I scan my body, part by part. Scalp, face, ears, throat… moving through flesh, muscle, organs and joints until I reach my toes. I start again, this time, from the toes up, retracing familiar territory, observing differences. Eventually scanning becomes free-flowing, roving, intuitive. Thoughts emerge, I let them go…”
