Pondering the Practice


We receive a new breath every few seconds… there are great teachings within this natural occurrence. Softening and opening offer receptivity to the meditative experience. As this step begins to permeate your awareness, you begin to sense whether you are rigid or soft, closed-off or open, defensive or accepting. Softening, opening, and receiving are choices which create powerful shifts toward being fully present in the moment. And from the present moment, the possibilities are endless.

Today’s reflection on Week 4 is offered by mindfulness instructor, Éowyn Ahlstrom, who is a member of Spirit Fire’s Board of Directors, as well as the author of Mindscapes: Practice Poems and a teacher at the Mindfulness Center at Brown University.

Enjoy.
