Alfred Brendel tells us “The word listen contains the same letters as the word silent.”

If you want to take your meditation practice deeper, you must first become comfortable with silence. In this week’s mini meditation, we practice cultivating the skill of deep listening within our meditation practice. We will create a space that is free of agitation, distraction, and reaction. And, if you choose to grab a journal, I’m also sharing one of my favorite ways to hone the skill of deep listening.

These mini meditations are meant to support a daily home practice. Tune in every Monday to find your practice for the week! Full episodes are released every Thursday for a longer, deeper practice.
