Meditation and Short Talk: Basic Elements of a Mindfulness Meditation Sitting (34:30 min.)

Mar 21, 2018

This short talk and guided meditation offers an overview of what many people find is a natural unfolding within a meditation sitting. It includes the process of arriving in an embodied presence, learning how to come back from thoughts, and then opening the attention mindfully to the changing flow of experience. The meditation provides generous space between prompts for practice.

Class was snowed out in Bethesda on March 20, so we offer this new recording from the morning instructions and sit at the 2017 IMCW New Year retreat.
