Guided Meditation – Level 2 (intermediate)
Greetings fellow practitioners,
Some of you may remember that about 1 year ago I shared a two-part talk on the theme of Developing Compassion as well as the 'level 1 – Foundation Practice' Guided Meditation. In the talks we explored the many benefits of developing compassion and in that first meditation we practiced holding compassion in the heart for oneself… one dear friend… and one neutral person. In this level 2 meditation we are practicing increasing our abilities by including more friends… some heavenly beings (devata)… more neutral people… as well as one 'difficult person.'
In some respects I find it hard to believe that it actually took me an entire year to get around to do the audio editing for this meditation! But then again in reviewing the past year it is also not so surprising. There was the big Chedi Project, a retreat in Malaysia, a Pilgrimage in India and my second monk's health challenges earlier in the year, which were all requiring energy and attention. The timing and volumes… progression etc, do require a careful attention and so I prefer not to rush. Nevermind… better late than never! I am happy to report that I am half way through editing the 'level 3' practice and have committed to finishing it in the last few days of my solo retreat here at Anandagiri. So level 3 is also 'Coming Soon.'! (excluding unforeseen death )
I hope that this meditation supports you in your cultivation of Compassion and that this cultivation brings many wonderful benefits.
