All of April I’ve been talking about ways to Awaken. Simple, real ways to open our eyes and access joy in the moments that make up our lives. And, I feel like awakening is such a perfect topic to tie-into meditation because meditation IS a practice of gently opening our eyes to the possibility of joy. Right here. Right now.

In today’s episode, we will explore the difference between trying to meditate and meditating. We will challenge ourselves with idea that there is no flaw in the moment that is taking place right now.

In a little twist, I’ll share a bit about the Zen practice of Koans. This is not my lineage nor my personal practice, but I was so moved by this particular story and teaching from John Tarrant that I wanted to share it with you all as well!

Join me for a discussion on ordinary mind, awakening and the patience of ordinary things followed by a 20-minute meditation.
