Episode 44: The Italy Tour

Hello again!!!  Or perhaps we should say, ‘Ciao!!!!’

After touring separately around the globe all summer, we embarked on the journey halfway around the world to meet up once again.  We landed in Italy on July 28th, 2014 to begin a tour of four cities, hosting meditation and mindfulness workshops, drum circles and various community ceremonies.  Now, we are back in a new podcast to say thank you to the people here who have helped us along the way, share what we’ve learned throughout the process and finally, what we think the future holds for TSATR.

Thanks for tuning in, and we hope you’ll leave comments or feedback on our social media sites.  You can find those links on our website or at: iTunestwitterfacebook and youtube!!!

Episode 41: Labeling

Labeling is an interesting thing to watch. Before we make sense of something, categorise, prioritise and assign importance or meaning to things we label them.

Todays show is just a short meditation that lets you notice how we tend to label. You’ll have a chance to spend some time seeing the world without labels. Just seeing what is.
Label free meditation and seeing the labeling process has been profound for me.
How does it feel for you?

Episode 39: Silence

Practicing silence can range from a silent retreat to no TV while eating.
How does your silence look?

It’s normal to be triggered by silence. It gives us the clarity to see our most subtle comforts and discomforts.
Silence is a sensitive and often vulnerable place. Be gentle on yourself and do what’s right for you right now… That may be different tomorrow.

This episode features music and insights from Josh Kane.

Meditation Practices
There are infinite tools for practicing silence, these are a few you might like:

  • Time alone in nature (let people know where you’ll be if it’s remote).
  • Blocking time for a silence practice or a silence retreat.
  • Use a pad and paper to communicate or write ideas down. Writing something down can let your mind release rather than try to remember or further explore it.
  • If a thought comes up when I’m practicing complete mental silence, I often come back to feeling the vibration of life in my hands or my heart. Any other present moment anchor like the breath, sound or touch works too.
  • Mentally or verbally reciting a simple mantra like “Sat Nam” or “So Hum” can help to silence the mind.
  • A super SUPER powerful meditation practice for profound silence. It’s worth checking out your local Kundalini Yoga class: So Darshan Chakra Kriya
