TEACHER: Luke Anderson
MEDITATION THEME: Knock knock knockin’ on edge’s door
Luke: In this sit, we’ll drop in and seek a comfortable exploration of a growing edge, the periphery of our understanding of something. Can we find that sweet spot, the place bridging the known and the unknown and empower ourselves through expanding our awareness? We will practice inviting a level of curiosity, closer proximity, and ‘oh’pening to our experiences (and their emotions) that we tend to distance ourselves from. For me, it’s the noisy neighbour, relationship jealousy, and a default to a judgey mindset that offers all kinds of space for growth. There is always an exit route for this type of explorative journey, making more room between us and an activated part, coming back to the breath, opening our eyes slightly, or dropping the practice and picking up something that feels right. It is my opinion that regardless of how deep we go or how close we get, the mere act of attempting this type of exploration can help soften our hard growing edges and empower us to expand our understanding of ourselves and the world around us.
