Meditation: Guided Heart Forgiveness Practice (from retreat)

Meditation: Guided Heart Forgiveness Practice (2016-05-09) - Tara gives brief instructions on the forgiveness practice, then guides us through a process of forgiveness of ourselves and others.

"Forgiving is a movement of your heart not to carry aversive hatred or blame. That you can care about someone and still create boundaries... Each of you has this wisdom, heart, being place that intuits that there really isn’t freedom in the moments that you’re carrying blame and judgment."

(from the Spring 2016 IMCW 7-day retreat)

Meditation: Rest in Awake Awareness (2016-07-06)

Meditation: Rest in Awake Awareness (2016-07-06) - When we allow the body to be a portal, we discover the ever-present background of awareness that includes the whole play of sensation, sound, aliveness. This meditation awakens us through a body scan, and then invites a relaxing back into the space of awareness. The guidance is to let everything be, just as it is, and become the silence that’s listening, the stillness out of which all forms arise.

Meditation: Letting Life Live Through You

Meditation: Letting Life Live Through You(2016-06-29) - This meditation begins with quieting the mind and collecting attention with the breath. We then awaken the senses through a body scan, open to sound, and rest in open awareness, allowing sounds and sensations to move through. Like an ocean, when we rest in openness, it’s possible to open to the waves that most want attention, without grasping or resisting. This engaged presence is the very essence of freedom, of inhabiting a wholeness of being.

Meditation: Know That You're Here (2016-06-22)

Meditation: Know That You're Here (2016-06-22) - We spend many moments in a trance, time traveling to the past and future, lost in a virtual reality. This meditation helps us collect our attention with our breath, awaken through the body, and open the senses. We then rest in the wakeful openness that includes changing experience, aware of the mystery and vividness of being Here.
