Sit, Breathe, Wake Up!
Building a Powerful Meditation Practice

How does one succeed in meditation? No matter what style or method of meditation you practice, whether you’re just a beginner or have been practicing for years, if you ever experience agitation, distraction and mind-wandering in your meditation or find yourself getting drowsy and dull, these retreat recordings are for you.

They include a series of guided meditations, through which you can learn specific techniques for overcoming these and other obstacles that stand in the way of becoming an accomplished meditator. Culadasa guides you through a variety of other practices, including Cultivating Joy, Loving Kindness, Finding the Still-point, and Realizing the Witness.

Interspersed among the guided meditations, which have been a popular part of past teaching retreats, are question and answer sessions. These teachings explore what it means to be mindful, both on the cushion and in daily life, and how mindfulness is cultivated.

    Hooray, a new bunch of podcasts to get stuck in to!

    I am an avid listener of these discussions and always enjoy Culadasa’s wise take on the Dharma. I put these mp3s on my Ipod and each evening evening I listen to them after my meditation. They really help me unwind before I go to sleep.

    Please keep up the good work, and thank you so much for all the inspiration. It keeps me practicing!
