Standing meditation involves standing with your hands grasped behind your back or in front of your abdomen. You should close your eyes. Try to feel your body in space, from head to toe, and note, "standing, standing." You can focus on the abdomen rising and falling as you do in the sitting meditation. At some point you may find that heaviness moves up your legs or you feel them becoming warmer. Note these sensations until you no longer wish to stand. When you are finished, you can move into another posture, such as walking or sitting, and alternate with these postures being careful to maintain the continuity of mindfulness that you have developed.
