Meditation: Receiving Life in Open, Awake Awareness (19:32 min.)

Sep 8, 2021

This meditation awakens a receptive attention to the senses, starting with physical sensations and opening to sound. Then we sense how open awake awareness is receiving the moment to moment arising and passing life. In the final part of the practice, we explore how awake awareness is receiving the experience of our heart and offer blessings to our inner life and all living beings.

Sensing if there’s any blessing or prayer or wish you’d like to offer to your own heart right now. And widening to sense how this openhearted awareness is all-inclusive. Sensing your prayer for all beings everywhere. May we realize and trust the loving awareness that’s our true home.
