Mindfulness-Quietening the Mind week 6

1 Comment

Firstly thank you so much forgiving up your own precious time to come along this evening. I love how the articulation of how what our minds do and how they work is developing week on week.  If you have any questions please feel free to contact me by the group facebook page or by email at philipanderson57121@gmail.com

 

This week the practice is sounds and thoughts meditation

Sounds and Thoughts Meditation

If you want a spoken guide to this practice, here is one below (erroneously called Listening and thoughts)

And as I mentioned before you can find Mark Williams leading some mindfulness practices on spotify as well Hope this link works to them.

I am attaching the 3 step breathing space again as I think it is such a lovely practice to carry around with us in our day to day life. The script I base mine around is  here. 3 Step Breathing Space and there is youtube guided one from Mark Williams here

 

Here are the instructions for mindfulness walking again if you wish to do this practice as well. Instructions for Mindful Walking

And here is the Wendell Berry poem I read at the end.

 

The Peace of Wild Things

When despair for the world grows in me

and I awake in the night for the least sound

in fear of what my life and my children’s lives might be,

I go and lie down where the wood drake

Rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.

I come into the peace of wild things

who do not tax their lives with forethought of grief.

I come into the presence of still water

and I feel above me the day-blind stars waiting with their light.

For a time I rest in the grace of the world, and I am free.

(By Wendell Berry)

Good luck with your practices and I look forward to seeing you next (and our last) week.
