Meditating . . . on a Pebble

I often meditate with pebbles. Well, one pebble at a time, really.

I’ve mentioned this from the stage and had several people inquire about exactly what that looks like. So I’ve put together a free audio program. It is delivered as a zip file with two MP3 files and a couple of photographs.

 

The first MP3 is a description of what the meditation is about. Basically, I use a physical object (the pebble) as a focus of attention. This makes it very easy to ignore distractions that come through my other senses. I also like the physical focus of the pebble because it makes it easy for me to “name” what I am experience.

One form of mindfulness meditation is to clear your mind and then name interruptions. For example: the sound of a bird or a car driving by; the thought about taking the car in for an oil change; or the feel of wind on my face. Once you name the distraction, you set it aside.

With a pebble, I simple name the sensations of hard, smooth, cracked, etc. I find it very easy to keep focused on the object of my choice.

I have several small bowls on my patio with pebbles I have collected over the years.聽 Most are from beaches I’ve visited as I travel. A few are from mountains (The top of the Andes; The top of Mt. Kilauea volcano.). One I bought. A few are gifts.

Taken as a group, it’s a wonderful collection of textures. Perfect for a little meditation.

You can download the 30MB file here: My Free Stuff Page.

Note: Free stuff has to be processed manually, so when you order, there’s a slight delay as either Kara or I process orders. Thank you for your patience.

I welcome your feedback on the audio program.

Happy Meditating!
