Podcast – Practice – Buddha smiles through us

Buddha Smiles as we practice the instructions from the Yoga Sutras 

This practice merges the instruction from Yoga Sutra 1:33 and the Buddhist Practice that both point to a Loving Kind way of being and acting. 

  • Looking to sutra 2:46 Stirum and Sukham and the Buddhist slogan “Strong back, soft front” 
  • Then directing your attention to 2:47 Loosening your effort while meditating on something specific becoming more effortless. Recall the work we did on Sutra 1:34-1:38 and the five areas of focus. Now by adding a “Buddha Nature Smile” we sweeten the practice with loving-kindness, compassion and wise understanding. 

As a result of practicing in this way we understand Patanjali’s Sutra 2:48. The goal is to discover the pair of opposites cease to exist and no longer have an impact. We experience the fading of separation and are aware of a new bathing into oneness, wholeness and completeness of Love. 

Podcast – Practice- Waves of Emotion

Yoga and meditation are not methods of anaesthetising your experience in life, rather yoga and meditation techniques are tools of managing those experiences. The anger, the anxiety and grief of the life experience are all real just as the joy, curiosity and happiness are real. However. they are also passing waves that do not define who you are. This practice explores who you are behind these emotions and focuses on discovering the essence of you.
