  1. After completing the teacher training program here, which I enjoyed immensely, I started a YouTube channel and opened the Blue Lotus Mindfulness and Meditation Center here in central Minnesota. I have to say it's been a very rewarding experience talking with and getting to help the people I've encountered.
  2. Thank you Gillian Yes, it's a fireplace. But to be honest I never use it
  3. This is such a wonderful question with everything that's going on as well as the seasonal changes that come with winter. I'm also in the northern latitudes so the sun's angle is much lower during the afternoon. This causes the sunlight to enter my southern facing windows differently and casts long rectangular blocks of light on the floor. And for some reason I've always found this type of light very 'homey'. I work from home so I get to enjoy the slow progression of these beautiful illuminated shapes move across my floor. As a bonus, my dogs will sometimes bask in the warmth of the light bringing a sense of calmness to the house as well.
  4. Yes, it's written by me and wow, I had no idea there was a quote like this out there.
  5. I had a situation that involved the suffering of another being. Witnessing such allowed me to meditate on ego. I'd like to share this poem with you all. How thin and fragile ego is. Ego is like the shell of an oak tree seed protecting what hasn’t fully developed on the inside. As the tree grows inside it realizes it needs to break free of what holds its growth. The shell resists. ‘No, stay with me and let me shield you’. But yet the tree pushes outward. The shell resists even more. Fighting with all it’s might because it knows it is worthless. The tree has broken free of its confines and reaches towards the sky with no barriers in sight. Roots take hold and strengthen its base. The trunk widens and strengthens as it reaches towards unlimited growth. And after many years, the mighty oak begins to reflect on all that it has experienced. It looks down towards the earth and sees the remnants of the shell that held back its potential. How thin and fragile ego is.
  6. Just one of the paths to enjoy an autumn walking meditation
  7. Children laughing and watching them play makes me happy.
  8. I'd like to let everyone know that I recently completed the Seans Mindfulness Meditation Teacher training program.

  9. Thank you @Gillian Sanger As for the graphic, it was a 'suggestion' offered by PowerPoint.
  10. As requested, here are 2 links to the guided meditation recordings. The files were both too large to upload here so I'm providing links to the files in my Google Drive. One is in a .mp4 (500 mB or so) file with a nice background Large This file is audio only (11 kB) Small Please let me know if there are any issues or concerns.
  11. I have considered recording it Probably within the next few days
  12. Hi Villa and welcome to the community. We're happy to have you here I used to live in Memphis a long time ago
