Understanding the Terrain – CEC Meditation

The Consciousness Explorers Club is now online! So if you’re from out of town and have always been curious about what the CEC gets up to every Monday night, now’s your chance to find out.

The sit is free, or you can donate something – information about that below. Our format is short chat, followed by a 35-minute guided sit, then some disorganized group sharing. About one hour total.

Our theme for Monday, February 15th:

Again and again, meditation teachers talk about the benefits of “popping out of your thoughts” – of panning back to a more spacious perspective, no longer embedded in fatalistic loops of rumination and mood and whatever else. To successfully do this, it helps to understand the terrain of thinking and feeling in the first place. In this guided meditation – one of my favourites – we’ll put on our field naturalist binoculars, and tip toe into the dark forest of the mind, looking and listening for local wildlife. Some the creatures we may encounter: subtle imagery, flickering through the trees. Inner talk – rustling, complaining, maybe helplessly repeating that damn Tik Tok sea shanty (“Soon may the Wellerman come, to bring thumping sounds to our own eardrum!”). Vague atmospheric moods, tingling and contracting through the body’s core. And below it all, the low-level spread of subconscious processing, branching like mycelium networks through the forest floor of the mind. Exploratory good times!

In terms of cost, here is the CEC:

“We encourage everyone near and far to participate. If you are able to donate a little something in return, we would greatly appreciate it. It’s a tough time financially right now, as we’re losing the income generated from our live offerings and fundraising events.  Every little bit helps us keep going with our non-for-profit mission to make meditation and personal growth practices awesome and accessible to all.

We gratefully accept donations via e-transfer (within Canada) or Paypal, sent to consciousnessexplorersclub@gmail.com. You can also sign up to be a monthly supporter via our Patreon page, and receive added perks and benefits in return.”
