Laughing Meditation WORKSHOP




The following two meditations (AUDIO - MP3) were guided by Stephanie Nash
in the zendo just before Shinzen Young's dharma talk
at his year-end retreat in Rancho Palos Verdes
December 28, 2009 - January 15, 2010.



(1st) Laughing Meditation
January 5, 2010

This first laughing meditation was guided on the night before the departure
of the participants who were attending the first half of the retreat.
This was the first such laughing meditation
to be led at a Shinzen Young retreat.
Enjoy.


LAUGHING MEDITATION #1




(2nd) Laughing Meditation
January 13, 2010


By popular request, another laughing meditation was offered
two nights before the end of the retreat.
Some had experienced the previous laughing meditation, some had not.
Enjoy...and feel the Flow.


LAUGHING MEDITATION #2





DEFINITIONS of Shinzen Young TERMINOLOGY
used in this meditation:

"FLOW" is a term Shinzen Young uses to describe any change, movement, energy or force within a sensory experience. This is often vibratory, undulatory, wave-like, expansive and/or contractive. And it's usually pleasant.

"BIFLUX" is a term Shinzen Young uses to describe a simultaneous expansive & contractive flow (that one might experience, for example, upon noticing the vanishing within each arising.) Don't worry about
this one, it will just explain a particular laugh during the meditation.


"FEEL" refers to any physical sensation that is emotional in nature - i.e. subjective sensations in the body.

"TOUCH" refers to all other physical sensations - i.e. objective sensations including contact with clothes, skin, breathing, etc.

"IMAGE" refers to the visual part of the thinking process.

"TALK" refers to verbal thinking.

TOUCH, FEEL, IMAGE & TALK may have spatial locations or specific 'centers' where one
experiences them that these participants have been practicing tuning into with sensory clarity & equanimity.
