TEACHER: Jude Star
THEME: Peaceful Presence
MEDITATION: Getting Settled
Jude: Lately I’ve been realizing that one of the most important aspects of meditation is learning the ins and outs of our own unique nervous system. My own system has an ever present buzz, a feeling that there’s some problem somewhere that needs fixing, and every time I’d sit down to meditate my mind would race in an attempt to locate the problem and find it’s resolution. Spoiler alert: there’s not always a resolution. So 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.
