Guided Meditation: Connect & Continue (Vitakka & Vicara) As Our Two Best Friends in Concentration Practice (Retreat at Spirit Rock)
2022-08-17 Guided Meditation: Connect & Continue (Vitakka & Vicara) As Our Two Best Friends in Concentration Practice (Retreat at Spirit Rock) 58:55
Nikki Mirghafori
In this guided meditation, we explore connecting with our intention, relaxing the body, and then devote ourselves to the first two jhanic factors: vitakka and vicara, initial application and sustained application, or connect and continue. The guidance ends with planting the seeds for gladness and joy by noticing the absence of the hindrances, as taught in the satipatthana sutta.
