Meditation: Arriving in Open Presence (18:01 min.)

Dec 19, 2018

This meditation begins with a receptive opening to body sensations and sounds, and the invitation to rest in wakeful presence. We are reminded that each time we awaken from thoughts and arrive again in presence, we are deepening the pathway home. The sitting closes with a brief lovingkindness prayer.

We close with lovingkindness…

Sensing the awareness that’s here – the openhearted awareness – and offering to your own being whatever prayer or wish of lovingkindness you’d like to offer… whatever resonates in this moment as a wish to yourself… with sincerity… offering that inwardly…

And sensing that heart-space… as all-inclusive… including all that are here… all that are joining us non-locally… all beings in all forms…

May all beings be filled with lovingkindness…
…held in lovingkindness.
May all beings touch great and natural peace.
May all beings awaken and be free.
