Welcoming The heart of meditation is learning how to welcome everything, just as it is. In Welcoming we realize that we have within us the capacity to meet each moment with a perfect response. Knowing how to welcome leads to self-trust and deep relaxation. Welcoming also reveals our self as the field of spacious awareness, in which everything arises. Knowing our self as awareness reveals how everything, including our self, is a facet of the wholeness of life. Knowing our self as awareness brings an end to separation, fear, and suffering.
