    Daily Meditation Recordings, with Nirmala Werner – Week of Dec 5 – 9, 2022

    This week’s theme is “Embodied Meditation Practise & the Transformative Power of the 5 Precepts”.

    Many people find themselves from time to time in a spiritual vacuum, trying to fill this emptiness with indulgence through eating, drinking, surfing the internet, shopping, pornography, doing drugs, etc. 

    This week we will look into the 5 precepts, which the Buddha recommended for anyone who wishes to live a peaceful life. The precepts can act as a training guideline, and can support us to stop, pause and look deeply into ourselves to understand, “What is really going on here?” as a fundamental part on our way to universal love, compassion and liberation.
