The tagline for ISHTA, the style of meditation I teach, is "unbound potential" in reference to the unbound nature of our connection to the greater universe. Or perhaps the unbound nature of the universe (but whether it is really, we don't yet know). It's an apt expression for the experience we sometimes encounter in meditation -- of feeling like one with our surroundings (whether the room or the universe) or of losing a sense of our own boundaries.

What’s in this episode?

In this week's practice of sat yam kriya, I'm using the technique to encourage you to imagine or build awareness of both your center and the boundaries around it, physical or imagined, so that you can, if you want to, let your awareness move through those boundaries. Move through, across, or to dissolve them...

 

What do you notice after practicing?

I wouldn't ask you to look for any particular effect or "result" from your meditation practice, but perhaps after practicing, you might take a beat to acknowledge what you notice in yourself after practicing. There's no right or wrong thing to notice!

EVERYDAY MEDITATION PODCAST: EPISODE #195

What’s this episode about?
Compassion meditations can boost your compassion and more. I talk about how that can be useful in your relationship not only with others, but also yourself.

Plus, the one reason I'm ready to add a compassion meditation to my regular practice!

What can I do with that?
I hope it inspires you to look a little deeper into where compassion comes into your life and the effects you feel or observe!

EVERYDAY MEDITATION PODCAST: EPISODE #160

What’s this episode about?
You've probably heard that meditation can reduce your stress.

And, yes! It can!

But in what way? And which kind of meditation? And how much do you need to do?

Can you tell me more now?
In today's podcast, I tackle the answers to these questions with the help of research reported and interpreted in the book Altered Traits by Daniel Goleman and Richard Davidson. (A book you should absolutely pick up --it's a great read with tons of sobering information about what we know and don't know about the effects of meditation. I loved it.).

What can I do with that?
I go into that in the episode! Today's break down should help put meditation practice into context, especially if you're using meditation to calm the frig down and get rid of stress.

I share which style of meditation may be the best for stress reduction, based on available research, and frame this week's ISHTA sat yam kriya practice in light of this stress reduction style.

I hope you’ll give it a listen:

EVERYDAY MEDITATION PODCAST: EPISODE 142

What’s this episode about?
The "sat yam" of sat yam kriya.

What’s sat yam kriya again?
A specific meditation practice. I describe the steps of the technique in the episode.

Can you tell me more now?
Okey dokey! Here’s one key bit:

The practice uses the mantra "sat yam".

And today, to help me process an emotional morning, I’m tapping into the meaning inside the Sanskrit words:
* sat = truth/fact
* yam = emotional reality

What can I do with that?
That is what you were gonna ask, right?! Cuz that’s what I cover in the episode 😉

I describe how to do the meditation practice PLUS suggest a short emotion observation practice you can do anywhere, anytime, just by choosing to.

I hope you’ll give it a listen!
