Thank you, that was great.
Thank you, Mark. Good stuff!
I think my ears have been permanently damaged by that high pitched zinger.
Are you referring to the singing bowl at the beginning and end? If you’re finding it painful, you might want to turn your volume down.
Thank you Mark, this is a lovely meditation for a beginner like me. I’m attempting it daily but occasionally “forget”.
Hi Mark, I’ve just finished your 20′ Guided meditation which I’ve been doing regularly now for about a month. In your very last closing remarks you use the word ‘happy’ and it always catches me. Yes, I know it implies calm, peaceful contentment, but it’s other images, of people partying etc., that come to mind. Perhaps there’s a fullness to ‘happy’ that isn’t captured in ‘contentment’ for instance. Hey, I know I’m being picky. Hopefully not objectionably so!
Martin, may all beings everywhere get down! “Be happy” is the traditional metta phrase and I guess I err on the side of brevity. Would “May all beings be truly happy and deeply peaceful” sound less salacious to you? I’m really glad to know you’ve been getting a lot of use out of the guided meditation and I hope it’s been a benefit to your practice.
Thanks Mark! putting together some of these guided meditation exercises along with the weekly practice suggestions from Dana ;-> very nice beginnings!
Im happy to have found this community, and this meditation to start my journey back on the cushion. Thanks Mark!
I’m very gratified to hear that it’s helping. I have recorded a new version that Anthony has succeeded in cleaning up, so that will be available soon!
I attempted to do mindfulness practice everyday for the past few months on my own without guidance and needless to say, it was difficult. I tried many guided meditations but this one stuck! Thank you so very much!
Sunny, thanks for sharing that! It makes me feel good to hear that people find the recordings helpful.
Thanks Mark..u made it so easy,got totally different perspective of meditation..thanks again.
Keko, thanks for your kind words! Best of luck with your practice.
