Non-Duality: A Study of Being
What. A. Year.
How to integrate?
Could the experiences of the past year
inform and support
a practice to nourish us during the Holiday Season?
To explore this, here are
contemplations of Non-Duality:
Embodying Being: Sarvodhaya (SAR-vo-Dye-yah)
(Welcome to a audio of a meditation practice called
"Taking Refuge in Presence"
adapted from Tara Brach's beautiful book
entitled Taking Refuge. Together we move through
an experiential map of sitting, sensing, mantra, Organasana, Mudra, Pranayama, and Meditation.
Practice Time: 39 mins
PDF of Sarvodhaya Meditation Map
Devadashanta Pranayama Meditation:
Watch. Listen. Feel. Breath pours from inner center into the outer pause, and back again. No duality, pure continuity. Join Becky for guidance of the Devadashanta Breath practice.
An audio experience of Devadashanta Breath.
Reflections of Relevance | Nonduality Practices
Pranayama Coherent Flow:
In-breath pours into the out-breath...
pauses are the container for the breath flow.
Simplify with this breath practice.
Place yourself in the space
between nerve cells;
in the space of sensation flow;
the intersection of information coming in
and information moving out.
Meditate in the Synapse.
