Deeptime Meditation Info

Penny Andrews and Margie Abbott will be working with certificate track participants to help them develop and offer Deeptime meditations and alignment exercises.   Both are highly experienced guides.  Margie shares her intention with mentoring participants in the following way: “I work to develop spontaneity when offering a meditation and thus build confidence.  It is about teaching how to prepare the self to lead a meditation. ” From this centered place of confidence in themselves and in their own emergence, participants can develop and lead their own meditations.

Meditation 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 XXX date.

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 Divina)
  5. Repeat key words or phrases, (Optional)
  6. Practice  to see how it feels for you and adjust

Here are our Deeptime Meditation Guidelines for further reference.

Please let me know the outline of your meditation and if you need any tech support.

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