Welcome to the first guided meditation for Tricycle Meditation Month!

Over the next four weeks, Insight meditation teacher Ruth King will lead you through four practices for ungripping the heart and mind based on the Satipatthana Sutta, which outlines the four foundations of mindfulness: mindfulness of the body, of sensations and feelings, of mind and consciousness, and of the Buddhist teachings.

The videos will be posted every Monday on our blog, Trike Daily, and are free to watch.

In her first talk, King starts with a body scan. She then discusses ways to develop an inner calm, and how to carry this awareness through your daily interactions.
