Born in Dublin and living in Taos, New Mexico, Seamus Berkeley gently shares with us the profound practice of entering the contemplative realm through one’s visual experience. A professional and very talented artist, Seamus illustrates how the natural world is a teacher bestowing gifts upon all of us. Gather together and listen as we unfold a meditative conversation in presence, celebrating the ability we all have to let go of constructs and begin to see things as they are.
Seamus Reminds Us:
~ Thomas Keating says: The fruits of contemplation… are in everyday life. He also says: Set an intention before meditation.
~ Take a contemplative walk and ask yourself, “What have I not seen today?” and “How is the light today?”
~ Beauty is a doorway into spaciousness presence awareness.
~ What is blue? Rest in the non-answer.
~ What if we choose to see everything as a gift?
~ Entering into the visual field is a letting go of agenda.
~ Awake = aware of awareness.
Suggested Practice: Sky Meditation
Look at the sky. Are there clouds? Is there movement? Look up… be present to what is.
Teachings by Thomas Keating, Gurdjieff, James Baraz, and Anam Thubten
