Rumi (1)

You wander from room to room Hunting for the diamond necklace   That is already around your neck      - Rumi

Group on 4th March 2016

We shared a 'Compassionate Breathing' practice based on a meditation from Christopher Germer's website mindfulselfcompassion.org (free downloads). Followed by enquiry. Discussion followed around Loving-Kindness meditation and some of the suggested practices (again see mindfulselfcompassion.org for downloads) which some have been using over previous weeks. There are many, many variants and adaptations for Loving-Kindness and Compassion-based practices, and flexibility and gentleness in approach is encouraged as such practices can be challenging and difficult for some. We finished the session with a 'Waiting on yourself' practice - again adapted from Germer.  

Thoughts On Wholeness (Bohm)

"What is needed is to learn afresh, to observe, and to discover for ourselves, the meaning of wholeness."
