Sensation List

These common sensory words and short phrases are one way to connect with and communicate sensations.

If you label an experience with more then one word or short phrase, your thinking mind has hijacked the process.  When you notice that you are following a story-line, a memory, planning a shopping list - just say oops! and make a fresh start.   Be patient with yourself.  Notice a few sensations at a time, and notice how they change.
