Erin: Our inner narrators often work hard, writing the stories of our days in real time, explaining and concocting, making meaning from our sensory input. Tonight we’ll turn the meditative lens on the storytelling engines of our brains, notice how and where these tales get written, and if we can stop the presses for a moment.
Steph: Nature is said to be our greatest teacher. But what to do when you live in a shoe(box) in a concrete jungle? In part 1, we’ll dive into our own physicality to uncover connections that tie us to nature, through the exploration of the five elements.
Erin: In this sit, we’ll explore tactile experiences of nature. First we’ll hold a rock in our hands, and connect to it’s solid stability. Then we’ll bring our hands to our hearts, and feel the flow within us.
Avi: It’s a spiritual cliché that we hold our issues in our tissues. Well, it’s a cliché for a reason. In tonight’s meditation we’ll notice where unconscious parts are hiding out in our body and work with attentional techniques to begin to break apart our defensive holding patterns.
