When we think of Buddhism, we think of meditation. In this episode I will take you on a tour of the many ways to meditate. But at the core of the episode is the simple awareness that all meditation rests on... and that everyday happiness rests on. Join me as I talk about what simple awareness is. Awareness is simply that and our minds are aware by their very nature, yet that nature is obscured by thoughts and emotions. Simple, clear awareness exists between our thoughts and underneath our emotions. In this episode I'll share some of my experiences with joyous spontaneous awareness and a little of my own awareness meditation practice... in hopes of inspiring you to look for and relax into the awareness that is at the heart of meditation and your being.
