Meditation for Re-Wilding the Self

Talk: Meditation for Re-Wilding the Self

Meditation is not only about stress-reduction. Nor is it about taming the mind, suppressing desires, or about becoming better or superior. It is surely not a grand self-improvement project. We meditate not to get rid of parts of our personality that we do not like. Instead, we meditate to relate to these parts with an even greater intimacy and compassion. Join us, as Nirali discusses how meditation can be a tool to unlock that wisdom and aliveness.
