120: meditation notes - remember the end state ( and start from there)

At the end of a meditation session I often feel a sense of comfort, familiarity and insight.  I'd like to be able to package that up and send it back to the 'me' that started the session.  The pattern in a 30 minute meditation session recapitulates ( and anticipates) the pattern of a lifespan.  May this also be useful to you.

116: modular synthesis, prayer and mantra

I just published a new video on my youtube channel, a recording of music from my modular synthesis studio (https://youtu.be/PcZ6vnbXA8M).  I've started to use language that comes from meditation practice to describe these kinds of pieces.  Do you think that kind of language is a useful way to talk about music ( this music, or any music?)

106: meditation notes - sitting as becoming familiar with sitting

What is it that's there right now?  a physical sensation?  A thought?  A thought about a physical sensation?  Anxiety about a future reaction?  Becoming familiar with asking that question opens a field of awareness.

ep.93: meditation notes - 'taking refuge' (with help from Beethoven opus 111)

A sprawling episode...even more than usual, I guess.  Taking refuge is a gift of the meditation practice, and we can find reminders everywhere.  Including in musical moments, for example the second movement of Beethoven's last piano sonata.
