Daily Meditation Recordings, with Sophie Boyer – Week of July 4, 2022

Sophie Boyer

We’re fortunate that Sophie Boyer has generously offered to lead our daily meditation sessions for Europe and the UK. To find out more about Sophie, 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 topic is “Generosity at the Heart of One of Life’s Greatest Mysteries“.

 

What meaning does generosity embody when we open our minds to accepting one of life’s greatest realities – that in fact we know and master very little. Let us explore the different ways in which facing our experiences with generosity allows us to let go of our preconceptions and taste all of life’s flavours and feel fully alive.
