We are four. A team. We’re working together to introduce 20 people on a weekend retreat to the practice of Serene Reflection Meditation. We have a leaflet outlining the basics…it’s not instruction on sitting.
Many have had experience both within this tradition and within others. The term meditation has come up over and over again. I’ve pointed out in many different ways and at length to: just sit, sit still within bodymind, it is enough to sit. To simply deliberately decide not to follow deliberate thoughts.
All easier said than done!
And then one chap observed when his mind became agitated he noticed a part of his body was disturbed. Eureka! He had discovered the connection. Body-mind, not two.

I’m glad that we’ve almost met. There’s synchronicity here. Tonight, I needed to be reminded to just be. Sometimes my mind works so very hard, and needs a gentle prod, to relax and not think.
Glad this site/post hits the spot. Synchronicity? Yep, all the time…
BTW I clicked on your name and it took me to your, now not active, Blogger site. Just thought I’d mention that since the baskets you make are worth a visit, on-line at least.
