- To ground oneself into a longer 10 minute daily practice, building on the previous weeks.
- Introduce yourself to silent meditations with the singing bowl timer.
- To be patient, kind, and curious during these longer sits.
How to Approach Practice:
The aim for each week is to:
- Meditate 6 times
- Attend 1 live session, or watch a recorded live session
- For these 2 weeks continue with meditating at the same time and place each day to the best of your ability.
- This Journey is your first big jump into longer sessions, so be patient with yourself as your mind and body get used to sitting still for an extended period of time.
- Make certain you are not forcing your body into unhealthy seated positions. It is important to have your body at ease, and with no pain. Use a cushion, chair, wall, or if necessary lie down. Visit the Postures Page if you need guidance on how to bring ease to the body during meditation.
- Introduce to yourself the experience of meditating without guidance by using the singing bowl timer found below. Use what you have learned up to this point to find confidence in sitting silently by yourself. This can be challenging, so please don't judge yourself if it is difficult.
And here is the same guidance you are familiar with from your previous journeys:
- From the offerings on this page, choose a recording to listen/watch 6 days of this week. Please feel free to repeat a recording that resonates with you.
- One day this week attend a live guided meditation session or watch a recorded live guided meditation on the Live Sessions page.
- We invite you to visit the Monthly Highlights page to supplement the material while on your RC journey.
How to Receive Certificate for Journey 4:
