“Each of us is an artist of our days; the greater our awareness the more creative our time will become.” - John O’Donohue
When it comes to resources for practice, we recommend exploring what you personally connect to. Starting with shorter practices, even listening to some talks can be really useful without the pressure of formal practice. Remember the whole idea is that we bring this stuff into our everyday life, beyond the zafu and so if you are new to it all then that’s just great. We cannot perfect this stuff, it is a commitment and a way of being.
We have carefully chosen a short selection that we like to get you started - sleep is a wonderful way to wind down and cultivate the slowing down for rest as self-care practice. The others are short also to give you room to explore. There are lots of apps too that are great including Headspace and Calm, please make sure you are not using any practice for the purpose of distraction.
Find what you connect to and what works for you. If you want more recommendations in addition to these then just contact us and we would love to support you in your practice.
