In planning the annual week-long retreat I co-teach with Susan Piver I've been thinking a lot about what it means to re-commit to our practice. Sometimes our practice is super consistent. Sometimes it's, well...not so much.
The right attitude goes a long way in getting us to the cushion. Here's a piece I wrote about how we can enter this year with a more open heart, starting on the meditation seat.
And speaking of cushions, I highly recommend investing in one if you haven't already. Yes, placing a candle, an incense burner, an image of someone you admire or even a statue helps denote "That's where I go to meditate" but in my personal experience nothing replaces a good cushion. I was recently gifted one by Rituals and am really digging it.
Last but not least, if you can't sneak away for a retreat or connect with a teacher in-person, maybe you wanna check out MNDFL Video for guided meditation. The videos range from 1-30 minutes, depending on what you can fit in.
And remember, if you do feel like you've been slacking in the consistency area, tomorrow is a new day. Let's re-commit to sit.
