Have you ever had the feeling of being at Home in yourself? How did it feel in your body? What else became available in those moments? What did you come to know as true?
Perhaps it was in a moment where circumstances or conditions were not necessarily perfect. It might even have felt a little messy, yet at the same time you experienced the ease or the peacefulness of Being at home in your humanity. The messy parts were not denied. The ‘put together’ parts were not held close. It was all just allowed to Be.
This ground of Being can feel natural and familiar, almost like we have always known how to Be. We have just forgotten. The felt sense of Being can reveal an underlying stillness, spaciousness and silence. This unchanging ground gently embraces the depths of our changing humanity.
How do we get there? Well, perhaps there is no where to get. It is already here, and what is needed is pause and rest. The portal is the field of the body itself.
What do we do when we are there? Once we are oriented, there is nothing to do. We can Be, feel and sense what already is.
On April 21st I’ll be offering a meditation event at Yoga Yoga North. While words can convey understanding, ultimately the jewel is known in experience itself. With this in mind, I will orient briefly to practices and then guide you toward your direct experience and the wisdom within.
Our time will include gentle and enlivening pranayama and movement. There will be periods of pause, and quiet sitting or reclining. I will lead you through a longer guided iRest® yoga nidra meditation, and we will also explore the ground of Being through walking meditation. Our time will close with inquiry, journaling, and sharing as it feels appropriate to you. This will be open to all levels. There are no barriers to Being. All that is needed is the curiosity to explore.
Yoga Yoga North, April 21, 1-4:30pm
