Vastitude

  Mind Meditation- Day 3   Awareness is omnipresent; it just is. Our mind operates within the field of awareness and wisdom precipitates from it.

This doorway can easily become obstructed or even slammed … More Vastitude

Allowing Luminosity

    Luminous Perception Meditation – Day 1  As we go-with-the-flow of our experience of breathing, we feel lighter.

Toroidal Flow

  Toroidal Flow Meditation – Day 1  The torus is a fundamental energetic mechanism.

We have … More Toroidal Flow

As Within, So Without

  Toroidal Flow Meditation – Day 2  Intentions lead to choices and choices lead to manifestations. As we look out into the material world we respond with new thoughts, feelings and desires.

Peace Between Breaths

This week, we continue with the Interlude, Step 7 of the practice. And today’s meditation considers the space between breaths – as all interludes take place in that lovely space in-between.
