What we're about
This group's purpose is to learn and practice the simple and easy to learn meditation techniques taught by Loch Kelly which are found in his book “Shift into Freedom”. See Loch's website, videos and audios by clicking: lochkelly.org (https://lochkelly.org/)
Loch says that learning to live in openhearted awareness is like learning to ride a bicycle! It is simply practicing the yoga (i.e. movement) of local awareness and it allows you to quickly shift to small glimpses of awake awareness. When you glimpse awake awareness you are momentarily experiencing your true nature which is normally completely obscured by the "mini-me" voice in your head. With practice you can do this at any time; even when everyday mind creates unease or upsets. As your skill with the technique improves you can eventually live from that openhearted awareness which is your true essence.
The key point is that anyone can quickly unhook or disconnect local awareness from thought and thereby immediately explore awake awareness in a matter of seconds or minutes. The reason local awareness has not been obvious is because we naturally confuse it with attention. Attention is generated and maintained by the everyday mind. Since attention is "louder" it constantly overwhelms local awareness, obscuring the fact of its existence.
You are invited to come and experience this relaxed, friendly group and share our journey of discovery by learning and practicing this amazingly simple meditation technique.
