The Loving Awareness Meditation Course

Health & Wellness Podcasts

Formerly The 2020 Meditation Podcast. Welcome to my Podcast. The Podcast is a set of meditation classes, talks and interviews. I am Robert Mitchell. I am a meditation and mindfulness teacher in London, England. The course website is at lovingawareness.fm If you *only* want meditations, visit "The Meditation Course" at meditationcourse.live Loving Awareness is living with a sense of connection to nature and to others. Living with Loving Awareness means we don't feel we are *in* the forest. We feel that we *are* the forest. By losing our sense of separateness, we lose our fear of rejection, isolation, and failure. In the modern world, we are disconnected from our natural sense of connection. The modern world disconnects us from the present moment, from our bodies, our minds, from others, and from nature. The true source of our suffering is our disconnection and separation from the global family of all living beings. The best way to reconnect is through meditation, especially group meditation. We are all born to experience Loving Awareness. It is our heritage, our natural sense of being. Visit lovingawareness.fm to learn more.

The Body Scan

2/25/2021
Historically, I haven't taught as the body scan very often largely because, very simply, people don't have the time to do it. however, I believe that For a number of us, there will now be more time, temporarily at least. So here is my version of the body scan. The thing that makes it different to how it is normally taught is that it includes relaxation as well as just focusing on the sensations in the body which is the common teaching method. The reason for this, as you will know if you have...

The Inner Eye Meditation

2/21/2021
This is a practice that I stumbled on recently. I have spent more time focusing on meditations that bring our attention to our eyes. The Inner Eye and The Third Eye are ancient concepts that have originated in the ancient Wisdom traditions and that have been, less usefully I feel, incorporated into New Age Spirituality. I think that at some point, the actual value of our awareness of the eyes and the area around the eyes has been lost. This is an interesting aspect of my personal...

This is a class that I taught as a live stream in The Loving Awareness Meditation Course on the evening of Sunday, 7 February 2021. The meditation explores the intersection between Presence (mindfulness) and impermanence by witnessing the present moment lightly as we perceive phenomena arising and subsiding within our awareness. By noticing this change through the flow of time of the present moment, we find ourselves connected to the present moment and hence to all things. This...

Posture - how to sit when meditating.

12/4/2020
Much has been said and written about this seemingly simple element of meditation. The practice of Yoga originated nearly three thousand years ago as a set of seated postures designed to assist meditators. (See 'The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali'). Throughout all of the multitude of information about how to sit when meditating runs a thread of common advice about keeping one's back straight. This raises the question of, among other unanswerable questions, "How do I actually know when my back is...
