Fear, Meditation and Relationship

Thank you Rob Owens great read!

Robert Owens Meditation

Chronic FearEveryone is afraid sometimes. And when we practice meditation, we begin to notice and experience things that others do not. We might begin to fear that we could be rejected by others for talking about the things we notice during and after meditation.

We may begin to notice our increased vulnerability in modern culture; the fragile invisible umbilical cords that bind us to the forests that provide oxygen, the cords to lakes and rivers from which we get our water and even the cord to the limited life of our sun that will eventually die out, but provides energy and life.

Guided Breathing meditations

Check out these meditations: written, recorded and narrated by my friend Robb Owens. Hey why not follow his blog too while you’re here!

Robert Owens Meditation

audio mic phtoSorry for having to post this article twice- there was a glitch on the Link below to the meditation recordings.

Due to a special request, I am re-posting here all three of my “guided breathing meditation” MP3 recordings from last year. Meditative breathing and yoga are some of my favourite experiments within the human condition.

The meditation instruction is the same as 2013, but this year I composed and recorded new introductory and background music, so if you listened to or downloaded the last set, then this set will sound new to you.

I use my professional background in communication arts to share my experience, strength and hope to anyone interested in relieving suffering and abolishing ignorance.

I like the short days, and coziness of long nights. I like being inside were it is warm, while outside it is cold.  I like bundling up and facing the elements every day for a brisk walk. The stars shine brighter, the streets are quieter, and it brings a deep sense of…
