    Practice and Prejudice: Waking up to our reality blinkers

    Daily Meditation Recordings, with Ulla Koenig – Week of May 8, 2023

    This week’s theme is “Which comes first, your practice or your life?” Does your life support your practice, or your practice your life? For me, things have been shifting recently, leaving me with lots to contemplate, particularly around the overlap between practice and systemic change. I’ll share some ideas and embodied relational techniques for working at these interesting edges, whilst giving you lots of open quiet meditation time, over our five mornings together.
