Guided meditation into the intimate refuge of body and breath. Relaxing into the support of the great mother earth. Opening to receive the flow of breath. 45-minuted guided meditation followed by 15 minute reflection.
Relax, observe, allow, and respond are the quiet R-O-A-R of the Dharma. These words place us in the proper orientation to life so that life can affect us. Notice this is not passivity, since responding is essential. These words set us up so that we are aligned with our spiritual intentions, each word offering a perspective on the ease and observation needed for our spiritual fulfillment.
On Yom Kippur, the day of atonement, and inspired by our practice of beginning again moment-by-moment, we explore and reflect on what is most important, where we are out of alignment or integrity, forgiveness, and re-dedication to our deeper aspirations.
