2023-09-20 Navigating Uncertainty with Courage and Tenderness 46:43
Kaira Jewel Lingo
This session is an invitation to come home to our body and mind so that we can meet the uncertainty of our times with courage and tenderness. With so many aspects of our lives impacted and disrupted by uncertainty and change, we will create space to care for our nervous systems, deepen connection to ourselves and others, and become intimate with the real unreliability of our circumstances and where we can nevertheless find true refuge. We will practice to hold ourselves and our communities with compassion and wisdom.

2023-09-20 Meditation: Opening to the Flow 23:30
Tara Brach
This meditation begins with gathering awareness of the breath. We then reflect on our deepest intention, sensing what most matters. With a listening attention, becoming aware of sounds that arise and pass away. We scan through the body, sensing the changing experience of energy and aliveness. Letting everything happen… not opposing anything… not controlling… moment to moment. Listening to and feeling this moment as an ever-changing river of experience. Opening to this changing flow and letting life flow through us.
