What do you want to cultivate in the new year? Join the Consciousness Explorers Club teaching team as we spend the first weekend of 2021 answering that question and sharing the practices that inspire and nourish us! There will be meditation, mindful movement, music, creative exercises, community discussions and lots more!!
Instead of trying to fix every imperfection, in this practice we are going to find ways to assure our nervous system that we can take a break from whatever it thinks is wrong and give it permission to get settled, dropping deeper into presence and finding the peace that resides there.
In tonight's meditation we will dive deep into our breath cycle, a classic concentration meditation technique, but take it even further into the wintertime of our breath.
In this particular practice we "touch earth and sky", building those qualities of mind from the ground up - from relaxation, through to stability, and into the vividness of sky-like attention; the space where insights flourish.
If you’ve studied art, you know that paintings can be analyzed by examining negative space. In music, one can study the silence in between notes. In the same way, this week I want to explore concentration by talking about its opposite and hopefully give a better understanding of what it is by checking out what it’s not.
