Riding the Waves of Our Experience Meditation
This meditation allows us to explore the waves of our experience. Thoughts, feelings and sensations come and go. The practice of mindfulness is the practice of "being with" these experiences, whether they are pleasant, unpleasant or neutral and allowing them to flow in whatever way they need to.
Poems shared include:
The Little Duck by Donald C. Babcock
Ride the Wave by Leah Ayliffe
Tell Me by Sandra Belfiore
Peace and Love Meditation
Using the words of Thich Nhat Hanh and inspired by the memory of Martin Luther King Jr., this meditation cultivates an inner state of peace and love. These qualities allow us to engage with the ever-changing world and create connection and meaning.
7 Mindful Minutes: Reflection on a New Year
This meditation reflects on three questions inspired by Jonathan Foust and James Clear. As you look forward and backward,
What worked well in the last year?
What didn't go so well?
What are you working towards?
Simply Meditation: New Year Reflection

What am I working towards in the year to come?

Simply Meditation: Seat of the Witness Body Scan
This guided meditation includes a short teaching on equanimity and being with one's experience. As we assume the seat of the witness, we drop into our body and bring a curious attention to what's happening right now.
Included are two readings recently shared by Jack Kornfield:
Habit Meditation 2: Three Habit Questions
Welcome to Creatures of Habit, a 29-day journey of Mindful Habit Change offered by Center4SelfCare.com. Our second meditation is a visualization where we address a habit, challenge or difficulty that we can recall in words and pictures. We then ask ourselves three questions: What am I doing? Is it right? What will I do next?

Great Way To Start The Day
I have come to enjoy these podcasts as an early morning pick-me-up. They are well thought out as well as insightful and ring out with chimes of hope and spirit. Mr. Balcer's view of life and living offer a welcome alternative to the self centered "Me-Dom" that drowns us daily. Keep up this valuable work...much needed to fill our often empty gas tanks.
