My guidance is about connecting more intimately with the full range experience, from exploring the heart states to touching the depths of the imaginal realm. Rather than a way to disconnect from life, my teaching is an invitation to show up for your life whole-heartedly and notice the inherent mystical nature of all experience.
Or explore below for heart practices, opening to non-duality, tantric practices, accessing jhana, engaging with life and opening to the imaginal realm.
Heart Awareness Practice
A very short and simple introductory practice for connecting with your heart space.
Radical Open-Hearted Acceptance
A guided meditation taking you on a journey through radical open-hearted acceptance in the different heart states – Friendliness, Compassion, Joy and Inclusion.
Accessing non-duality from the different parts of your being
A short introduction to noting and then guidance for stepping back into awareness
A talk and guided meditation about becoming energy
A talk and guided meditation about non-duality with meaning and how this can turn all experience into poetic expression
A more in-depth talk about this approach to practice (50 mins) and a guided meditation on using jhanas to connect with all experience (30 mins).
Tantra With Emotions
A longer talk on one of the most transformational practices – working with emotions in a tantric, embodied way.
The practice reduces numbing, projection and reactivity and increases our capacity to be radically, lovingly present with the full truth of experience.
Purifying Energy with Tantra
A short intro and guided meditation on purifying energy. This draws on trigger and alignment phrases related to each of the layers of experience, which has been defined on my awakening map. You can find the full exercise here.
The Formless Jhanas, Body-First Approach
A short talk through accessing the jhanas from a body-first approach and a description/ guidance for each of the formless jhanas.
Practice for the Benefit of All Beings
A guided meditation on practice for the benefit of all beings.
I’d recommend spending a moment reflecting on what ‘practice for the benefit of all beings’ means to you before doing this. There’s a short exercise to help with this below.
Set a two minute timer and write down all the things that come to mind when you think of ‘practice for the benefit of all beings’.
Some questions, if you would like a prompt:
- What sort of beings do you imagine?
- Do you have an image or concept of what ‘all beings’ means to you?
- Is all practice for the benefit of all beings? Are there particular practices that are more relevant?
- Do you naturally include yourself in all beings? Does it feel easier to practice for yourself or for others?
- Are there particular benefits that come to mind when you imagine benefitting all beings? What benefits do you think are most needed at the moment?
- What emotions or feelings does practicing for the benefit of all beings evoke in you? Are there difficult ones? And pleasant ones?
- What’s the potential impact of practicing for the benefit of all beings? On you, on other people and on the world?
- What ways does your practice already benefit yourself and others? Are there ways in which you sabotage the benefits of your practice to yourself or others?
- How does practicing for the benefit of all beings relate to awakening for you?
At the end of the meditation, I’d recommend taking some time to look back at what you’ve written and reflect on how you feel about it after practicing, noticing if anything has changed.
New Year Reflection and Intention Setting
I did this at new year, but it can be done at any time to reflect upon life.
It starts with a short exercise, which you will need a pen and paper for, and is followed by a guided meditation, which connects intentions to emptiness, non-duality and the hum of the Universe.
Some talks and guided meditations going into different aspects of imaginal practice. You can find more content on my imaginal practice overview page.
A full set of talks from our retreat that was designed to give people all the skills they needed to become an imaginal practitioner.
A quick, 10 minute overview of the four senses of the inner world.
Connecting with these senses (rather than using touch, see, hear, smell, taste) can take you much deeper into your inner world.
