Dharmabytes from Free Buddhist Audio

Vajradevi introduces the idea of 'talking meditation', where we carry the thread of awareness through verbal communication. This extends beyond awareness of the speech precepts to being aware of the texture or tone of our own and others' voices, using a 'settled back' stance and giving priority to the thread of awareness/knowing over the content of what's being said. She gives tips for the practice: staying aware of our own minds, aiming to let go of trying and focusing so as to aim for a more panoramic awareness.

From the talk Working Mindfully with Communication & Language which is part of the series Pathways to the Beautiful Mind: Bristol Rains Retreat, 2019.
