 This is a therapeutic form of meditation in that ALL experiences are welcome. There is no requirement to sustain a rigid body position, follow the breath, or recite a mantra. In this style of sitting, we are interested in what the mind and body naturally do, when not being given a task. Without bringing anything new into the equation, we can truly work with the mind as it usually is. Utilizing memory as an actual practice of caring awareness, folks will be invited to recall and reflect on their sittings, mitigating the often compartmentalized nature of meditative practice.  From this, there is an opportunity to journal and share experiences in a small group setting. This has a rich function and benefit of embodying and integrating, meditative states into relationship and daily life.
