On Podcasting Meditation
January 12, 2007
Usually when I lead guided meditations, it’s in person. Podcasting has been a very different kind of experience. In person, I see everyone’s faces, I have a sense of “where they’re at” with meditation, and I can feel the energy of the group and how it’s responding during the meditation. There’s an immediate kind of feedback mechanism. The meditations are created by the consciousness of the group.
When I record a meditation for a podcast, I know its also being created by the group, and yet I don’t really know who is “out there”. It’s been great receiving emails, and they’ve helped me know what people are responding to and hoping for in future podcasts. One woman, for example, wanted some direction about coping with grief, and I plan to focus on that in a future podcast.
I’d love to hear from you — you can leave comments here if you wish. Ultimately I know, however, that even if I don’t hear from another person, we are meditating together in what, for me, is a most unexpected and delightful way. Thanks for visiting and thanks for listening!
