It’s Day 1 of Tricycle Meditation Month, our annual challenge to sit all 31 days of March, and we’re getting started with the first of four free guided meditation videos led by our Meditation Month teacher, Sebene Selassie.
Sebene is a teacher in the Insight Meditation tradition who has been studying Buddhism for over 30 years. This month, she uses a Buddhist teaching from the Satipatthana Sutta on mindfulness of the four elements—earth, fire, water, and air—to invite us into a holistic and embodied awareness of our experience. These simple approaches to awareness are designed to help you develop a regular meditation practice.
In this first video on the element of earth, Sebene explains how we can stay present with the experience of the body—creating a sense of stability in our practice that will last throughout this month-long commitment to meditation.
