Most spiritual practices I’ve come across, teachings I’ve read, and people with wisdom I’ve met, express that learning how to get quiet in both body and mind is an invaluable and necessary practice on the pathway towards our liberation. We are pinged, dinged and messaged to death and, unless we say so, it never ends. Perhaps it’s not a mystery why so many of us have such a hard time choosing to get still, it’s confrontational! For some of us silence in childhood was associated with tension, danger, or loneliness,For others of us we had a parent figure or sibling who filled our soundscapes with their commentary, feedback and directives, making silence an unfamiliar experience altogether. It’s true that silence is violence when it comes to advocating for what is right, it is also true that to fill all space and time with words and actions and screens is to rob ourselves of the truth, healing and clarity that arises when we are willing to get quiet and listen. To heal our relationship with silence is to heal our relationship with ourselves, to clear out old emotional clutter and to find a connection with Source. Want to get quiet together? At least a little, during the theta meditation, I’ll probably talk most of the time… we’ll do a little belief work together, around silence, around meditation and on how to find the pleasure in stillness, not as a denial of life and what our world needs of us now, but as a form of getting steady and ready to play full out!
Group ThetaHealing Session #11; The Value of Silence
I started doing donation based group work at the beginning of covid to stay connected to people and with the desire to offer something in a universally strange and challenging time. These are not polished, edited productions but simple recordings of the group work I've been doing most Friday's @ 3:00.
These offerings are designed to uplift, to soothe and to celebrate the transformation that can happen when we slow down and learn to use language in a way that empowers.
Quite a few of these include a ThetaHealing Meditation in the beginning, for those of you unfamiliar with the practice, feel free to follow along or skip to the group work, although I believe the meditation is just as beneficial to receiving as the work itself.
If you have enjoyed or benefitted from these works please donate here:
