Heartfelt Listening
Heartfelt Listening
We all listen, but do we really pay attention to what we are hearing? Mindful listening means to listen non-judgmentally without the need to reply or say something in return, but to fully give one's attention with care and empathy. If you find yourself dwelling a lot on thinking and feel obliged to reply something back, this meditation will help you to pay close attention to various sense faculties, starting with sound, its meaning and feelings. Based on the feedback, you can through back what you have said and confirm this is what is being said or meant - rather than guessing what we assume to be true. This practice will help improve our ability to feel empathy, build new connections and develop better relaxations with the surroundings and people.  Listen to the 7 minutes tract if you need more time. All the best.

Non-Judging
Non-Judging
This meditation can help you be free of negativity and have an open mind about you, people and life in general. There is a saying "in the expert's mind, there are only few possibilities, but in the beginner's mind there are many". Often our prejudgements and past conditioning can come in the way of experiencing life as truly it is. We can become so caught up in our head about how we should be, how others should be and how life should be - we can miss  living life completely. This meditation is about seeing things with fresh eyes and mindset, even the ones we consider to be bad. We see with open mind and new possibilities.  "A rose is a rose is a rose" -  Gertrude Stein

Accepting Feelings as They Are
You cannot stop the waves, but you can learn to surf. Similarly you cannot control your feelings, but you can learn to manage them. We only want pleasant feelings and don't want unpleasant. But both approaches are wrong. We can learn to accept feelings just the way they are. Feelings come and go, they are never permanent. Therefore, you can learn to let go eventually.
