Saturday Mindfulness Meditation


Tomorrow is our usual community meditation.

You do not need to believe in anything to meditate.

All you need to do is breathe!

Perhaps you want your heart to feel more open and clear, your mind more steady and stable. Mindfulness can help you with this. Anyone can join us.

I hope you might joint us where ever you are. We are trying for the first time to use Google Hangouts for those who can’t just stroll in the door. Please be patient with us as we try this experiment!

Also, I would like tomorrow’s practice to be dedicated to all those suffering from sickness, injury, pain of the body or mind. Part of my intention will go out to Marcia Brenner, a friend and kick-ass writer, and all around human being, who was struck by a car a week ago while riding her bike in Chicago. She is recovering and brave and is helping create community which as she says, reflects her values. Think all good love things, and sharing, and loving kindness and listening and being healthy and everything awesome and strong.

Please feel free to send us the names of any people you especially want to support in the comments. We do not need to know the details. Only that someone needs to be held in compassionate awareness and love. We will hold the names of those beings in our hearts and send them our love and support.

You may join us in person, via the Hangout, or just sit with us where ever you are, knowing that we are sitting with you, all of us together. The ripple effect of our combines desire for peace will spread everywhere. We will leave the world a little bit better.

And, if you would like to see a great program from CBS featuring meditation teacher, Sharon Salzberg, and other great teachers, you can do that here. (I tried to embed it but could not figure out how. Not a techy person. At. All. Sorry.)

May all find peace.

Carpe diem. Carpe pacem.

And as a final post-script, again, I want to thank the Live Your Legend community. You guys are amazing and give me courage. Every. Single. Day. To Scott’s memory. Let’s keep it all going. Namaste.
