With patience, we train our wild mind to prefer peace, stillness, and the subtle, exquisite joy found in meditation. With intentionality, we exit the sensual world and uncover the wondrous pleasures hidden beneath the surface of our turbulent mind.
Why do we meditate? To see reality accurately so the mind can be freed from the absurd expectation that some manipulation of mental states and matter can bring enduring happiness. This work centers on how we interact with unfolding reality.
This progressive, guided meditation on the breath explores the beginning tetrads in the Ānāpānasati Sutta.
A daily meditation practice is a way of relinquishing the world and entering a reality of freedom and peace.
