Kevin: Concepts can help us with our practice when they help us attune to our experience, yielding deeper knowing, or insight. ‘Impermanence’ (or ‘flow’) is familiar to many of us, at least as a concept. Tonight we will explore what it means in experience and how it can transform what we ‘know’ of our inner world.
Where attention goes, neural firing flows, and neural connection grows. – Dr. Daniel J. Siegel
Steph: In Dan Siegel’s book “Aware” he introduces the concept of the “Wheel of Awareness,” a tool he claims will help introduce more well being in your life by helping you to focus and direct your awareness. In part 1, we’ll explore this wheel in a guided meditation on what Siegel refers to as the Eight Senses.
Avi: Dialectical integration happens when we hold different poles of our experience in our awareness until we understand the larger, meaningful whole of which they are parts. In tonight’s meditation we concentrate attention on an integrative concept such as “wholeness” while allowing our awareness to embrace multiple fields of meaning and perception.
