Meditation: Wakeful, Open Awareness (19:39 min.)

Jun 19, 2019


When we awaken our senses, we can sense in the background a wakeful openness that is our true home. This meditation guides us by first attending to the space, aliveness and awareness that fills the body, and then by sensing how interior and exterior space is continuous, and suffused with the light of awareness.

“As you sit in the stillness, let your senses be awake…
aware of listening…
aware of the sounds around you…
aware of the sensations and feelings in your body…
aware of any strong emotions that might be here…
and aware in the background of that presence…
that openness that’s noticing what’s happening…”
