Guidelines

Cover Message
Here’s the cover message that people on the certificate track regarding guidelines for their meditation.

Dear [Potential Leader],

So glad you can lead the meditation on 2022.

We’re guiding people in how to transition into the meditation and essentialize the experience so it can be powerful and transformative.

  1. Reflect on the Deeptime Principle for your session before creating your meditation.
  2. To start, invite people to close their eyes and take a breath.
  3. Please keep your words to no more than 200, preferably less, and within the time frame of 3 minutes.  When you speak, let your words drop into the silence in a slow and meditative pace.
  4. Create lots of silence  (similar to Lectio Diving)
  5. Repeat key words or phrases, ( Optional)
  6. Practice  to see how it feels for you and adjust

Here are our Meditation Guidelines for further reference.

Please let me know what you are thinking of sharing on that day and if you need any tech support.

I’ll let Steve know the flow and logistics for the morning’s offering and if any tech support is needed.

Thanks,

Penny
