Meditation is the state of being fully aware in the present moment; to see things as they truly are, without judgement. Through practicing entering the state of meditation, we open up to life’s adundance on and off the cushion, letting go of the uncertainty and fear that keeps us from growing. Each moment of life is an opportunity to practice presence. May these offerings support your self-discovery, awakening, inner peace, and provide the strength to serve others, generously leading with love. – Johnny
