Daily Meditation Recordings, with Milla Gregor – Week of April 22, 2024

Milla Gregor

We’re fortunate that Milla Gregor has generously offered to lead our daily meditation sessions for Europe and the UK. Click here to find out more about Milla and to view her other contributions to Sangha Live. Recordings will be posted by the end of the day of the live session.

 

This week’s theme is “Breath, Body, Connection and Reflection

 

Breath, body and connection are areas of practice that come up again and again in Buddhist teaching. We’ll explore them in different combinations, and reflect on how they can support your meditation practice and your wider life, with all their opportunities for relationship, engagement and embodied presence.

 

For those who are interested, Milla mentioned the teachers Leigh Brasington and Ethan Nichtern this week. Other important teachers in her life are Martin Aylward, Martine Batchelor and Lama Rod Owens. More information about Milla can be found in her bio here.

    The beauty of the spontaneous movement of life

    Nowadays, for most of us, life is so full, so fast and dispersed in so many directions: jobs, partners, children, family, house, everyday duties, mobile phone, internet, responsibility, stress, tiredness, worries … and when we find a small space, we fill it with hobbies, friends, sports, TV and every other little thing we usually don’t…

The more we are embodied and present, timelessness and space become more experientially available to us. The now starts to stretch and become wide…

    Daily Meditation Recordings, with Zohar Lavie – Week of December 12, 2022

    This week’s topic is “Interwoven and Free”

    The Buddha invited us to investigate our experience moment by moment. One of the key things we uncover as we do this is that separation is an illusion, and that we are deeply interwoven and interconnected with all beings and all things. This week we will disentangle the habitual knots of isolation and ignorance and open to the freedom available as we open our exploration of inter-being.

  • Acting on Behalf of Consciousness

    As we move into this new year, most of us are ready to leave 2020 behind. So much hardship, for so many, has arisen in the last year. Many of us felt more isolated, more separate, than ever before. As we transition into 2021, rather than live and act on behalf of that felt sense…
