These meditations are based on a series of practices Prema Dasara introduces in retreats to awaken the awareness of the relationship of the elements of our world to the Five Wisdoms inherent in our awakened potential. Using dakini practices introduced in Ken McLeods Wake Up to Your Life one explores the reactivity that produces negative emotions, and experiences the transformation of this energy into open awareness.
Track 1. Nine Healing Breaths
One of the easiest and most powerful meditation practices, a simple experience of letting go of tension and opening to relaxed awakeness.
Track 2. Meditation on Sensory Experience
In meditation practice distractions from the different senses arise. It is a natural product of the mind. In mindfulness meditation we learn to recognize these distractions as temporary experiences and do not loose precious meditation time fighting them. We learn to direct our attention into the object of our choice.
