Daily Meditation Recordings, with Sophie Boyer – Week of Mar 11, 2024

Sophie Boyer

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 will be posted by the end of the day of the live session.

 

This week’s topic is “To Be on the Road Without Leaving Home“.

 

Zen Master Hakuin reveals an apparent tension between movement and stillness in this statement.

 

What may the road refer to? What is called home?

 

Sophie Boyer will lead our Daily Meditations this week, inviting us to engage with this paradoxical dynamic. We’ll discover that stability and ground can become more spacious in every situation, every experience, and every condition. How it is possible to discover, or re-discover, home … endlessly.

    Aditthana: The art of commitment
