Inviting in Other Anchors of Attention

When practicing mindful compassion, we often use the breath as the anchor of our attention of the object of our focused attention.  David TreLeaven invites us to offer students other anchors of attention or objects of focused attention such as sound, smell, the body connecting to the chair, the feet on the floor, or some small movements.  Just as you would guide an opening arrival to class mindfulness practice, you may want to change the object of focused attention around so students can explore what works well for them in particular situations.
