Meditators are often advised to “drop the storyline and return to the breath”. The intention in shamatha is to become familiar with our storylines so that we are not captivated, captured, defined or dictated by them. However, dropping the storyline doesn’t mean we disavow our Stories - of where we come from, who we come from, our experiences, our struggles, successes, challenges and everything that makes each of us a unique and complex being.
Join me on Wednesday, September 4th 7pm EST for a live online Weekly Dharma Gathering. I’ll be giving the talk “Don’t Drop Me: Story vs Storyline.” Sessions include a guided meditation, talk, and Q& discussion. All talks are recorded and accessible post the live session.
