'Meditation on the Body' is a participatory poem and a guided meditation. Think of it as a . . . gothic mindfulness exercise.

It takes 10 minutes or fewer minutes to play, and is best enjoyed in full screen with headphones, on a laptop/desktop.

(If playing on a mobile device, Google Chrome in landscape seems to work best.)

First published by Cordite Poetry Review (GAME, 2021). Soundscape by Timothy Tate. This poem was made in Twine.

Ran into this error: 

wings The (lowercase:) macro's 1st value is the number 0, but should be a string.

Thank you! I'll check it out. 

Hey Metaparadox: may I ask if you headed for 'wings' or 'water' first? I'm trying to locate that bug but haven't just yet.

I got a similar error message when I went toward wings ! The meditation was very inspiring though, thanks for this moment

Thank you so much for letting me know! I've gotta track down this bug.

Thank you for playing and taking the time to comment. :


Fixed! Feel free to re-download. :)


I ran into a similar error message when I went toward wings - I headed toward water first

Thank you! I've gotta find this little blighter.


Found and fixed it!! It was an error resulting from the journey from wings to water, so thank you so much for that tip.  <3
