He has been studying whales for ten years, and practicing and writing about meditation for more than 25 years.
Recorded on the shores of the Bay of Fundy in New Brunswick, Canada, this episode of The Natural Contemplative explores the roots of the environmental crisis from a contemplative perspective. Complete with foghorns. 38 mins.
Silence is our constant friend and companion. It gives us rest when we are tired. It listens when we need to talk. It receives us when we are anxious or confused. It humbly steps out of the way when we think we have something better to do. But it never leaves us. It is here before we are born. It is here while we live. It is here after we pass away. If you do one thing in this life, become acquainted with silence. 19 min.
Natural meditation does not involve trying to attain an extraordinary state of consciousness or quietness, nor does it take extraordinary concentration or training. It is a natural way of being that is inherent in every person. 7 min.
