|The first step toward awareness beyond myself came early in childhood as I explored the stunning Alberta landscape where I was born. My parents taught me to pay attention to the natural beauty of the surrounding world by calling my attention to its beauty. In my memoire, “Notes on Hunger”, I’ve named this practice, The Call to Beauty. Building on the example my parents set, on my own, I gradually realized that attuning consciously to beauty in nature could open a portal to continual growth in the everyday world as well as something beyond. This focus on inner awareness might be called prayer by some. Others might call it meditation. However you see it, they are close cousins and such practices brighten the facets of the inner jewel that is your spirit. |
It was a slow process becoming comfortable in the present while never leaving the mystical behind, but a sense of being part of the All provided me with extraordinary resilience. An ever-expanding resource that flows from this open well of inner listening is available here online at Inner Listening: Meditations
The community at Findhorn spend time in private and group meditation. Inner listening is part of life there both on an individual level and in group practice. Participation in activities at the Sweat Lodge, the Universal Hall, the Nature Sanctuary are only a few of the many places where inner listening can be found. Below are a few links to some of the people whose practice within the community is appreciated. There are many more links to be found online.
