Those of us who were fortunate enough to attend Brian and Margaret’s “LIberating Art” weekend this fall received a potent introduction to the powerful approach to Calm-Abiding meditation practice that Brian Callahan is offering in this remarkable intensive program over zoom.
Meditation Is Freedom offers an in-depth training in the foundations of Calm-Abiding practice. Meditation Is Freedom leads practitioners from the beginning foundations of “how-to” meditate like a master through deeper and deeper stages of focus to a state of relaxed attention and presence. You may not know it yet, but improving your skill at focused attention can make everything about your meditation better.
