Daily Meditation Recordings, with Catherine McGee – Week of April 25, 2022

Catherine McGee

We’re fortunate that Catherine McGee has generously offered to lead our daily meditation sessions for Europe and the UK. To find out more about Catherine, and to view her other contributions to Sangha Live, click here.

 

Recordings are posted 24 – 36 hours after the live session runs.

 

This week’s theme is “Exploring and Developing the Power of a Light Touch“.

 

A light touch can allow our practice to unfold more easefully, make the depths of our hearts more available and create a greater agility in our relationships with the world. With our body as the primary ground for our practice we will explore different ways to cultivate this kind of attention, enjoy the fruits of our efforts and attend to what might hinder this natural capacity
