Beginner Meditation with Suzanne Faith
with Suzanne Faith
One of the most classical but also incredibly effective ways to become awake to our patterns is through meditation. Our patterns can distract us or propel us in the wrong direction.
The inner-terrain is a very sacred space. Ideally we enter and exit the meditation practices slowly and with a tenderness. If we become restless or scattered during our meditation, it is best to treat it like a window into a part of yourSELF. Be present for what is kicking you out of your meditation. Meditation is progressive…..it metamorphizes over time on the inside, going from concentration (dharana) into free-flow awareness (dyana) in a very subtle manner over time. I feel it is best to keep the practices very simple and allow the meditation to take you and to unfold on its own.
Yoga and Meditation in our Everyday Life
The old yoga texts tell us that Right Action prepares us for our meditation practice. Right Action is a shamanic term that essentially means our actions that are aligned with our hearts intentions. Right Action leads us to our higher purpose in life, our Dharma.
For those of us that are not rooted in a yoga practice of meditation, I feel it is important to remember that the yoga is accessible in our everyday actions. I feel much of our work as humans is to look beyond the ripples of wounds, bumpy egos and the karmic patterning we often experience when engaging with others and ourselves. Right Action is a pathway of yoga in and of itself.
