Joy Meditation & Practice

Connect to more joy in your life. These are recordings of a guided meditation (12 minutes) and a brief talk on spiritual practice (5 minutes) intended to help bring more joy into your life.

Joy, as I experience and talk about it, is an internally-realized, deeply felt, long-lasting sense of appreciation for being alive (and is different from “happiness,” which generally arises out of response to external stimuli and is short-lived).

The recording is part of a foll0w-up conference call to a 3-day retreat, but hopefully helpful to anyone who listens!


MEDITATION: (I suggest sitting in a comfortable position that will also help keep you awake, and to take 10 conscious, deep breaths before beginning the meditation)
