Meditation. The message is clear.  The external demands of our world claim more of our focus and attention than ever before.   In the haze of your daily life, how much agency do you exercise in determining how to spend your day?  For example, when you click the alert that shows the time you spent on your phone, are you able to account for all that time spent?  Or were many of those moments mindlessly spent scrolling through the Instagram and Tick Tock?  Of course, we all mindlessly move through some tasks in our day; as it should be.   But wouldn’t it be great to make more of our moments mindful and in turn more impactful?   Now, we all can benefit from taking time to connect with ourselves in a real way, quiet the external input to enable us to be more discerning with how we want to make an impression on our immediate kula (community).  There is nothing intangible about meditation.  You have all the tools you need.  This bundle is meant to be a guide for those of you who are new to meditation and for those of you who want to do more but need a little nudging.

This week's practice is a pranayama practice called Nadi Sodhana which means "purification of the nerves". It is commonly referred to as alternate nostril breathing.   The benefits of this practice are a balancing of the left and right hemispheres of the brain as well as a quieting of the more calculative parts of the brain and a stimulation of the more contemplative parts of the brain.  Pair this practice with any of the other classes from the library
"We would be a lot less frustrated if we realized that meditation is like any other intimate relationship.  It requires patience, commitment, and deep tolerance.  Just as our encounters with others can be wondrous but also baffling, scary and even irritating, our encounters with the self have their own moods and flavors.  Like any other relationship, this one changes over time.  And it is best undertaken with love." Swami Durgananda aka Sally Kempton, from The Heart of Meditation.This is a guided meditation.   It could be a great addition to any of our 30 minute practices or it can stand alone.
