Martin Aylward, Ginny, and I Discuss How to Embody Awareness and …
- His book, Awake Where You Are: The Art of Embodied Awareness
- The habits of “Grabby Mind”, “Resistant Mind”, and “Check Out Mind”
- The good news that can learn to meet our experience more kindly and more spaciously
- How aging can be humiliating or humbling depending on how much we try to hold on to our younger self-image
- The distinction between what is true vs. what is useful to focus on
- How to recognize and work with the deficient age gap
- The way our life experiences are stored in our bodies
- Sometimes meditation isn’t quite psychological enough. It can help dissolve inner states in the moment but further understanding is needed in order for them to really resolve
- Waking up, growing up, showing up, cleaning up
- No rehearsal, No replay
- Inhabiting this moment is the best way to prepare for the next moment
