With Thanks

I recently had an opportunity to present at an online embodiment conference. It was a one-time session, late on a Monday night. Though our gathering was small, we shared a pleasant hour together - practicing, for the most part. And practicing, I felt, in a way that was far more settled than one might expect.

Once the hour was over, I returned to my usual commitments - family life, the ongoing Sutrayana Mahayana program, classes and so on - and thought that was that. A few days later, however, I was sent a link to a recording. ‘What am I going to do with this?!?’ I wondered. An answer appeared even before this sentence came to an end.

Below you will find an audio player loaded with that practice. Though we were together for an hour that night, our meditation session ran through the middle forty minutes or so; we both started and ended with a little talking. I hope you find this offering of benefit through these winter months. May it help you stay connected during the holidays. May it bring you back to this work we do again and again.

Whilst listening and practicing, I hope you feel my very real appreciation for your willingness to do this - to practice - in a culture that often seems to ask for anything but. Thank you for coming back to the body. Thank you for settling. Thank you for being curious about what it is to be human in this world, what it is to be alive.

Until we meet again,

- Neil
