This Meditation is taken from the Deepening Course which is a course for committed meditators. See the end of this description for the link.
There are a five different main areas of focus for our awareness.
There is mind wandering and awareness of the body. These are what are called Inner Phenomena. With mind wandering, our single awareness has been captured by an inner narrative.
There is autopilot and external awareness. These are external phenomena. In autopilot, we are generally repeating activities we have learned unconsciously, such as driving or navigating on a regular journey.
Then there is balanced focus where we can maintain our awareness and yet be sensitive to both inner and outer phenomena.
In this class, we explored these both with meditation and by going through the experiences that we have that enable us to become aware of these different states of focus.
