with Arjan Stockhausen
7 September 2021


We direct attention inward to encounter inner structures in meditative guidance. These, like material, are first examined for their texture. In this way, unconscious layers of ourselves become conscious. Learning to feel in a new way — with the possibility of experiencing and recognizing an underlying nature of every inner phenomenon. Peace and relaxation are concomitants of a deeper understanding.
