One of the best ways to learn mindfulness, or to practice meditation, is to use a body. (preferably your own, as concentrating on someone else’s can get you yelled at, especially on the S. Florida Tri-Rail between Miami and Boca. Trust me, you’ve been warned)
I recently did a very basis meditation audio for a spiritual development community, doing my best to explain some esoteric ideas around meditation and various out of body types of experiences. (which is the focus of this particular class, and course, within this community)
I found it to be sort of a strange and uncomfortable experience, as I try to keep my interest in these more esoteric concepts at arms length from my name…..but decided, in the interest of keeping it real, to share a meditation practice I’ve used many times, to get a taste of what pure consciousness, absent a body, (appears) to feel like.
I was motivated to do this, by dint of some others who are teaching in the same community, and sharing some very exotic “plant medicine” experiences with Ayuhuasca, DMT, and other enthnogenic adventures……. that made my tepid tap dance into the domain of dualism, a bit less of a real risk.
So if you want to hear me talking this sort of thing, feel free to listen here.
I don ‘t think I’ve mastered the guided meditation voice yet. And as usual, I use very little scripting in my audios and drink far too much coffee. Which means……this one at times, feels like – WTF is this guy talking about 🙂
