I went live on Facebook to jabber about what we did over the Summer of 2021, and also to talk just a bit about Mantra Practice.
An old man with a ukulele sings Don Henley’s Boys of Summer.
We added a Tanpura/Swarmandal to our collection of instruments last week, so I’ve been spending a great deal of time getting it under hand, and using it in my daily meditation practice. It works really well for japa with shorter mantras.
I’m hoping to make it through 108 Gayatri repetitions during this month’s Key City Kirtan gathering.
The event is free and open to the public, but you do have to register in advance. Here’s the link for that.
Come join us!
Although I am not a trained TM practitioner, the technique is (from what I understand) similar to what I practice each day.
CEO of the David Lynch Foundation, Bob Roth, recently spoke about TM in an online video seminar for folks who are interested in learning it. The video doesn’t describe the step-by-step specifics of how to meditate, but is an excellent introduction to the philosophy and benefits of the practice.
I cannot explain it. You’ll just have to watch.
Claudia and I have been chanting the Siri Gaitri together each day for several weeks now. Today we took to Facebook Live to share the mantra.
I took to Facebook in a live session talking about how the Tarot has changed my life, and some tips on how to get started.
Just a couple of old Hippie songs on a Friday Night.
I’ve been feeling drawn to the acoustic guitar again lately, and have also been remembering how good it feels to play and sing for others. Facebook Live offers an opportunity to share the music without dragging a bunch of equipment out to a tavern, being away from my family, or staying up too late past my bedtime. 🙂
I may do some more of these from time to time. It would be nice to figure out how to make it a little more interactive, and get some decent sound and video quality too. But this will do for now.
