Poetry ~ My Private Getaway

A hush falls over the city

Snow falls, and Winter wind blows

In the early morning hours

When the air still looks blue

Standing in the cold silence

Before the world intrudes

Hundreds of tiny flakes buffeting my face

Like ice filled rushing stars

Magical, invigorating, peaceful

The sound of crickets, alpha, and beta fill my ears

And heart with wonder and peace

My own private getaway

With nothing but the stillness

To soothe my soul.

Mini Meditation Workshop

Well everyone, today is the big day for the first major post in the new schedule. I have to admit that I am excited to offer a Mini Meditation Workshop, which has been a while in the making. Over the past few years I’ve had several people request that I publish something like this and it pleases me to finally have written it. The workshop is compact but filled with general meditation information, as well as a meditation exercise which I’ve written especially for this workshop. It’s a meditation which I have been personally using for years and I hope that it brings you as many benefits as it has brought me.

At the end of the workshop are some questions I’ve written to help you to overcome some obstacles frequently encountered with meditation, as well as some physical pointers to help you on your way. If you have any questions which you would like answers to about meditation, whether general in nature or something which pops up for you individually, please feel free to ask them here through a comment…or use the email address provided in the second box in the right sidebar if you do not wish to ask the question publicly.

Okay, now for the good stuff. Here is a link for you to go and grab your free copy: http://www.lulu.com/shop/tracy-makara/mini-meditation-workshop/ebook/product-20144834.html
