Burning Man Meditations: Radical Inclusion

Radical inclusion, one of the 10 Burning Man Principles, usually points to holding space for others to feel included in our community. This meditation turns this principle around, exploring where we can be radically inclusive of ourselves. There is a universe of thoughts, sensations, and emotions inside of us, and yet we spend a lot of time and energy trying to push these away or simply being too caught up in the everyday grind to notice they're there. 

What would it feel like to be accepting and inclusive of all of ourselves? That's what we hope to facilitate in this meditation. Check it out!

You can also find the meditation on Soundcloud. If you're interested in these sorts of practices, check out the Awaken Meditation Kickstarter to learn about what we're building.

And stay tuned - I hope to do more like these! This was as inspired by life-changing conversations with new friends as the sun rose over deep playa as it was by mindfulness practice in the Zendo (meditation hall in a Zen center or monastery). I've been burning since 2012 (but missed last year!) and reallyy can't wait to be back home with you in just a few weeks!
