It refers to the first establishment: contemplating the body. If explored more deeply, and in conjunction with the other three – contemplating feelings, mind and the path to clarity and freedom, the identified practices can support the development of insight and wisdom more capable of navigating both the internal and external challenges of a rapidly changing world. Offered by Rhonda V. Magee.
