The Living Awareness blog is dedicated to showcasing online meditations from the Practice of Living Awareness, Spirit Fire’s own meditation practice. It is a 14-step guided meditation program designed for every level of practitioner. The practice is online and always free. Each step is simple and builds upon the one before. We offer a new twenty-minute guided meditation three days per week. Each new week explores a new step of the practice; that’s 14 steps in 14 weeks… or 14 meditative tools to use on and off of the cushion. As each 14-step “round” comes to a completion, we take a short break and then start again from the beginning. Because our meditations are recorded in present time, each meditation within each round is new.  Every round integrates beautifully with the last, in the same way that every step builds upon the one before.

In addition, we provide two additional streams of meditations: Breathe and Light. Breathe supports the mindfulness-based aspects of the Practice of Living Awareness; these meditations are led by Carol Martin. Light engages the insight-based aspects of the practice; these are led by Martha Henry-MacDonald.
