It is delightful to see the names of registrants for all levels of The Practice of Living Awareness, old names and new ones. Excitement is in the air to be meditating together again. We begin Monday, January 26 at 9 am ET with the Entry level. Tuesday is Intermediate, and Saturday is the Generative Stage.

Also, the world needs YOU! The Sunday World Service meditation is your time to meditatively give back to Mother Earth. Join us for that every Sunday. Register.

Registration is necessary to join the live meditations. If the podcasts serve you best (due to when you will be meditating), then no registration is necessary.

Also, The Practice of Living Awareness blog is completely edited and refreshed. Enjoy a meditation today! Here’s a few to choose from.

Meditation is Magic

step1There is no limit to the awareness available to a human being. Our challenge is how to access and sustain it. A good meditation practice is one that works to do just this: to bring your conscious Self forward in life and throughout your day. That’s why this one is called The Practice of Living Awareness.

Each step is simple and builds upon the one before. Allow each step to become “stable and known to you. In this way, it will benefit living your life as well as your meditation sitting.

Each Entry level meditation is 20 minutes long. Why?

  • Because it can take up to 15 minutes for the brain and its synapses to slow down from their stimulated daily mode.
  • Because the first 5 minutes or so for everyone is simply arriving. It takes us a few moments to “be present.” As we cultivate a meditation practice this length of time usually decreases. To facilitate that, you are encouraged to sit quietly for a few minutes before starting a podcast, or to arrive and settle for the same length of time before we start a live meditation.
  • Because a 20 minute meditation allows the brain enough time to relax, the body to get comfortable, attention to begin to focus on what is at hand (such as the breath or a smile).
  • It’s not too long so that beginners get frustrated.
  • In other words, 20 minutes is just long enough to stretch into and feel good about your sitting.

One Round of The Practice takes about 6 months. This gives the practitioner time to become familiar with each step, to experience ts benefits, and to integrate them into daily living. Then we engage the next step knowing that it is building upon or deepening all that has come before.

Register to be part of the live meditations: Monday through Friday, or Sunday’s World Service meditation, or monthly Full Moon meditations. Please register for each level or type of meditation you have interest in.

The list of the steps are on Spirit Fire’s site.

alignmentWe’re culling the Living Awareness blog for the cream of the crop of its meditations. The years 2012 and 2013 are complete. Audio files have been updated, as WordPress no longer supports the form that was there. 2014 is not refreshed yet, so please don’t go to those archived posts yet.

The new round of The Practice of Living Awareness will begin on Monday, January 26 with the Entry practice at 9 am ET. The usual rhythm will ensue: M/W/F for Entry level, T/Th for Intermediate, Sat for Generative all at 9 am ET. Sunday at 10 am ET for the World Service meditation.

Here are some highlights of 2012. Use them this week for inspiration, alignment, and renewal.

Excellent choices from 2012, see below. Articles and posts chosen from 2013, please see the post from January 19, 2015.
