#56 – Experiencing transmission together
5 October 2022
In our first October meditation, Danis Bois reminded us of a notion that is dear to him: ‘Distance is an illusion, as is proximity’. Through the step-by-step process of this meditation, meditators were invited to experiment the various channels that reduce distance between meditators: the voice of the guide and the quality of their presence, silence, motionlessness, energy in motion, transmission and finally thought and imagination turned towards others, towards our aspirations or towards more humanity.
The movement that moves within you is not simply an animation and an active principle. It is a quality of presence, a presence that wants what is good for you.Danis Bois.
Participants were able to evaluate their own capicity to perceive, grasp and recognise the signs of the presence of transmission:
- Perceiving within a slow animation, embodied within living matter
- Feeling and being aware that we are not the origin of this movement
- And finally feeling a sense of protection, of a presence that is attentive and benevolent
When these signs are combined, meditators can direct this transmission towards someone of their choosing or towards a personal objective, by means of thought and imagination..
We can imagine a world that is more human, we can influence the becoming of our wishes and of our deep aspirations.Danis Bois
In the final phase of the meditation, ‘coming back to ourself’, meditators are invited to ‘come home’ by distancing themselves from the group without disconnecting from this place that is common to us all, that was experienced during this meditation on the theme of “living together”.
