In this practice we explore the question “Who are you?” The practice of realising your true nature, what is behind the story of you and refining your relationship to the one who is perceiving moment by moment awareness. We recognise all sounds, sensations, thoughts and emotions are like the passing weather through the sky of your awareness. This meditation allows you to expand your horizons and help you understand who you are when you are not trying to be somebody but rather building a relationship to this wisdom of awareness and abiding effortlessly in loving wakefulness.

Vipssana is a traditional Buddhist meditation practice developing mindfulness to see clearly or to have insight into the nature of all things. This simple practice works by resting your attention in moment by moment awareness with less and less effort. We will practice wakefully breathing, observing sensation, and passing thoughts and feelings. This practice develops your capacity to recognise when you get lost in the story line, gently drawing your awareness to note and label what it is, then guide your awareness back to moment by moment presence. When you truly surrender to being here now, resting in the illuminated emptiness, you open your innate inner wisdom of knowledge seeing into the nature of everything. Click here to access.
There is much mis-conception about the Chakras. At the most basic level, they are wheels or vortexes within the body that both receive and radiate energy. There are seven of them and they start at the crown of the head and then are strategically found down through the body to the base of the spine. The Bija Mantras are known as the “seed sounds”, or the one-syllable sounds that activate the Chakras. Mantra is said to protect the mind and the use of these mantras is to spark a positive neurological effect within the body, energy and mind. We use the the Bija sounds to open us to the meaning of what these Chakras hold, empowering, motivating and potentially healing us through practice. I am not a singer so pardon the pitch and tone of my Bija Mantras, but I will try to express the sound and vibration of these teachings for you to explore your unique resonance and to harmonise the systems and to leave you with radiance from your practice.

Cultivating a forgiving heart takes practice, so continuing to repeat this practice in and out your meditation space is vital, reminding yourself of the very basic human goodness, the desire to be happy and not to suffer.
