I just returned from a 10 day Dhamma Dharra retreat and really loved it. I do however have a couple of questions and am interested in hearing your experiences. Two obstacles that I came across when scanning my body were:
a) My eyes move whenever I scan through my body as if I'm trying to look at that part of my body as I work, and
b) I can't scan without envisioning the body part I'm scanning (I don't get a photographic image of my leg in my mind per se, more just a hazy shape of a leg).
