Meditation practice begins at 11:59.
Dear Open Heart Project,
I know that meditation is counseled as a way to de-stress, develop greater powers of concentration, and get a better night’s sleep. All true! However, it is also a path to true, lasting joy. All we have to do, at least from time to time, is jump off the self-improvement treadmill to instead rest with ourselves exactly as we are. It turns out that this is the most expeditions route to freedom from suffering.
In this video, I share with you three very important (and simple) steps you can take to keep your meditation practice in the realm of true transformation rather than yet another self-improvement hack designed to make you feel inadequate.
As always, I love to hear your thoughts! How does your practice feel to you? Did self-improvement get you here (like so many of us)?
With appreciation and love, Susan
P.S. I’m hosting a meditation retreat in October where we will explore how Buddhism and the enneagram create the create the kind of magic that wakes us up to who we really are. Don’t sleep on this one! Spaces are limited. Find all the details here.
