Practice points for opening to the moment



In early May, Greg Kramer came to Clouds and gave a retreat.  His emphasis is on how to bring meditation and mindfulness into activity, relationships and verbal dialogue.  I found it quite powerful.  Since then, I have been working with his practice points, which I would like to share.

From “Insight Dialogue, The Interpersonal Path to Freedom”

1.   Pause
2.   Relax the body
3.   Accept your thoughts (accept the storyline)
4.   Open to what is happening in this moment (often noticed through body sensation)
5.   Trust Emergence
6.   Listening deeply
7.   Speak or act from your truth and heart
