Just Being, Just Sitting: Getting Out of Your Own Way in Meditation

No Comments

Just Sitting is the practice of radical self-acceptance. It is a practice of non-doing in which, as we sit, we allow thoughts to pass through the mind unobstructedly, and without getting caught up in their storylines. In time the mind stills, and a peaceful state of pure, effortless awareness emerges.

On this 28-session, self-paced online course, you’ll learn how to sit without judgement, to practice radical self-acceptance, and to rest in an open and expansive state of awareness. Ultimately you will learn to recognize that it is not “you” who meditates, and allow your meditation to unfold spontaneously and effortlessly toward awakening, from within.

The course is led by Bodhipaksa.

You’re free to enroll now. The emails will start going out on Sept 1.
