A Mirror Meditation For Self-Compassion
"Are you ready to take your self-care practice to the next level?" my teacher asked. My eyes widened. I flipped my palms up, sat up straight, and with no hesitation, replied, "Yes."
As this point, I had been in India for almost six months. It was the tail-end of my second pilgrimage there since I'd started practicing Buddhism two years prior.
"Stand naked in front of a full-size mirror for 10 minutes every day for 30 days," my teacher said. "You will see all of your judgments and flaws in a magnifying glass until after some time, they will fall away."
