LISTENING PRACTICE

A meditation by Hanneli Ågotsdatter

AUDIO FILE · Duration: 9 min

In this meditation we practice the quality of listening to ourself and to our surroundings with presence and mindful awareness. Through physical grounding in the body we open up to the inner and outer soundscape. Cultivating this quality of a listening presence is an invitation into a deeper centering and being.
