Open Awareness

2: Open Awareness

This second type of meditation focuses around an outward awareness. When practicing it, one is being present and aware of everything that happens around him/her. The sounds of ocean, vastness of the blue sky, healing powers of a forest, a warm summer breeze…

Being present and accepting of whatever arises is the main goal of this type of meditative teaching. The Zen practice (Zazen) is an example of this type of meditation practiced in the West.
