Transcript

Oh la so.

So you may have noticed that I have kind of boundless enthusiasm for these teachings in the Natural Liberation, I mean kind of like boundless, and sometimes the enthusiasm in teaching, that’s just giving the teachings themselves, I get a bit of carried away, like a fire hydrant once again, and that’s really not the best way to spend these eight weeks, you know, to overwhelm you with information, and I think I have a little bit, because if you listen to any of the podcasts, and I think many of you have, we have had much more time for discussion. But when I got into the role, it’s kind of like, you know I couldn’t help myself (laughs). I just find the material so incredibly inspiring. And when I find something really good, I want to share it. I can’t help it. It’s an addiction I think, a problem and addiction. So there it is.

So let’s just have a silent session. We’ll do the chanting. There will be a silent session, no guided meditation. You’ve heard so much guidance you probably have it coming out your ears by now. So just choose your own meditation – no need to record this – let’s just have quiet meditation. I’ll chant, we can chant together, and then quiet (audible inhalation and exhalation).
