There are aspects of life that are not pleasant. Among the countless joys and blessings, there is loss and pain, yet even these, if we accept them, perhaps embrace them, can add to the depth of our life experience.

Accepting the unpleasant, sitting quietly and exploring it with an open mind and heart, we are often treated to a hidden gift, even if that gift is simply a more profound experience of our lives, or a greater feeling of confidence that we can navigate this world with grace and equanimity regardless of our circumstances.

In this guided meditation, you are guided to explore the difference between our typical way of thinking about things we find unpleasant, with a more mindful.

Heeding the Call Home is part of the guided meditaiton series, Meditations for Deep Living.
