During meditation, we are aware of our experience here and now. We practice observing without judging. We notice how sensations, thoughts, feelings, mind states are passing by, changing all the time. We are invited to be kind and compassionate towards the experience and towards ourselves, softening into what is, softening into the depth of who we are. There will also be time to rest, journal or walk.
