Meditation Class Monday 11/10
- Our 4th class for the fall semester will be 6:30 to 8 pm Monday night.
As usual we will be enjoying the uncomfortable environment of an 8th
grade History classroom (it's actually very funky, cool, and other
outdated adjectives). This room is absolutely unconductive to
meditation and thus perfect for learning methods to deal with the
physical, mental, and emotional stress's we face daily in "real life".
No incense, serene and inspiring pictures of divinities or saints, no
soft cushions to sit on, and a fire station across the street, which
is perfect for witnessing our habitual fear of death reactivity when
the alarm goes off. I do play 'new age' music in the background, as
this has proven to be more wanted by the students than not, but
personally I think that the sounds of laughter in the hallways, people
coughing, announcements over the loudspeaker, and other things that
have the potential of distracting us from our meditation, are far more
valuable, as that, once again, is more likely to be what goes on
moment to moment. And by witnessing what distracts us, we gain a
potential to see how we are reactive and "asleep at the switch", and
thus start to awaken and be effortlessly actively meditative 24x7. And
I have yet to find a moment that isn't "better" when experienced in a
meditative mode. And most importantly, we become more and more the
witness of our life as it takes place, and this is important because
this Witness is our Real Self.
Now, please be aware that this class will not have a terribly long
post-class discussion period, as we will all want to get home in time
for the kickoff of the Eagles - Packers game. So please ask your
questions, or share want you want to during the class itself:-)
Seriously, whatever is needed, whenever it is needed, will be what
will be. If you have any questions, or need directions, please feel
free to email me at: medit8@...
I hope to see you in class.
Peace and blessings,
