At the Integral European Conference Online 2021, I gave a morning practice session with this name.
"In this morning meditation, you will be gently guided into a spacious and loving presence in the present moment, in this present body, and in this present group of people. While I am guiding you with my voice, I myself will be guided by source inspiration and whatever is present in the group.
I am always surprised and delighted myself by what emerges in these meditations. You can expect to emerge from this hour refreshed and enlivened, with a deeper sense of connection to your own body, to other beings around you, including all participants of IEC, and your environment."
And on Friday May 28th at 8pm CEST, I offered a follow up session. Both are available on my YouTube Channel:
The Seven Points of Mind Training are an ancient Tibetan method to use negative circumstances as the path to liberation.
We begin by finding a way into stillness, the basic ground of being. Then we reverse our usual reactional pattern to pleasant and unpleasant feelings with the method "Sending and Taking" (Tonglen). We work with those feelings and thoughts that are in the foreground at this moment, in particular the unpleasant ones.
Every week I will choose some of the slogains that seem particularly relevant and reflect on them and might also take a few questions.
I offered these sessions as a gift. If you would like to also make me a gift and support my work, you can do so via Paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org.
