This is a tool by the Presencing Institute and part of the Theory U methodology. You can also find other Theory U tools in our toolbox (just search for ‘Theory U’) and on the website of Presencing Institute.

This is a mindfulness of body practice. It will help you develop the ability to notice when your mind has become lost in thought, and when you notice that, to bring it back to the present moment. This is the most important skill needed to practice Social Presencing Theater.

In this tool you’ll find a video explaining the exercise as well as written instructions.
