MINDFULNESS - Mindful Listening
Welcome to lesson 6 of the Introduction to Mindfulness course.
Today is an exciting day.
We're going to learn one of my favorite practices, which I call Mindful Listening.

Today’s lesson will take 17 minutes. Make sure you will not be disturbed, and...

This time there was total silence and I was far away in a great feeling of overall love.
This was more difficult than I thought. At first I was listening so intensely I forgot to breathe. So bringing my attention back to rising… falling… and then back to listening helped.
The first mindfull listening meditation I had was when I was eight and the teacher gave us the exercise to be silent and listen to the sounds we heard.
So we could tell it afterwards and the class became more quiet. Nice to do this again.
Hi, Vered, how wonderful to just listen to my husband’s snoring in a mindful way. I slept like a log, thank you!
So great to hear this Jet. Snoring can be such a disturbing noise, but when you do it, like you did, not only it can become a “lullaby”?… but also it improves your skill in staying in equanimity
