We invite you to join Trillium Teacher Sanji Hills in a meditative exploration of embodied experience as a route to consciousness. Deliberately shining the light awareness onto specific parts of our body can serve as a gate to drop into consciousness. It is “The mystery of not knowing, which lies at the heart of all our experience. Can you feel comfortable just resting in this not knowing?”

Join Trillium teacher Bill Miller in this second Dragon Heart meditation. The dragon represents the ability to master any circumstance, to navigate in any world regardless of what it encounters. This meditation uses the dragon heart metaphor to represent choiceless awareness, the nature of reality itself as it unfolds. When noticing the effortless movement of attention, one can start to become fully embodied just as we are.
Gravity is an attractive force present throughout the universe drawing everything into closer communion. Embodied awakening is an apprenticeship to love–we fall into it. It’s a surrender to something mediated by a force that’s larger than us–more fundamental. This meditation with Steve Boggs helps us to explore the field of love and how our deep surrender takes us into it through the question: How much of that force can I let in?
Radical Embrace is one of the most effective practices in our toolkit – and it is one which we can either let happen on its own, or be a little more encouraging with in order to receive its gifts. Join Trillium Awakening teacher Cielle Backstrom as she guides us through embracing whatever is true for you in the present moment, and fully Greenlighting anything that is arising in order to be fully felt and integrated.
Join Trillium Interning Teacher, Victor Antillon, on this guided meditation to get in touch with that which is timeless. From this space, you can simply just observe what goes on around you without a sense of attachment. At the very root of consciousness, there is only an endless sense of calm, peace and well-being. It is the foundation from which we think, feel and see: a primal stillness.
These unusual times are calling each of us to deepen our capacity to “hold” ourselves, others and current events. In the Trillium dharma, holding is defined as being in Presence with something or someone with heartfelt support for the other as they are. There’s a way in which this definition engages the three petals of the Trillium teaching. In this meditation, Trillium Awakening Interning Teacher Denise Gallagher explores the multiple dimensions of holding.
This guided meditation will show you how to welcome back into heart-consciousness aspects of yourself that have been exiled. By reclaiming our exiled parts, we reduce our need to project them onto others. Trillium Awakening Teacher Margit Bantowsky draws from a deeply transformative, somato-imaginal process called Inner Relationship Focusing, developed by Ann Weiser Cornell, an offshoot of Eugene Gendlin’s original work called Focusing www.focusingresources.com
“There’s a quiet corner of every human heart that longs for release from continual pressure at the heart of their spiritual quest: a restless quiet hunger that there must be something more than all of this.” This meditation starts from that quiet corner, the start of your spiritual quest, “the sacramental impulse that has shaped your spiritual life.” Join Trillium teacher Steve Boggs on this journey back to the start of your spiritual investigation.
The Hebrew word RUACH, meaning wind or breath, is the archetype for SPIRIT, which is the always available bridge leading us from gross to subtle states of Consciousness. In this meditation, Trillium teacher Sandra Glickman leads us to work with our breath as we explore these important questions: Where are you in life right now? Where do you want to go? What is in the way of attaining this desire? What is the next step? If you explore and feel into the answers to these questions and begin to include them into your being, you can build a bridge toward your vision.
In some traditions, the Dragon is a creature that is comfortable in any environment. Like us, whatever the world she’s in, she is what she is, and she has to be able to respond. Living and dying is happening in every moment, and it is sorrowful and difficult. Feeling into the source of things, even just for a brief moment, is greatly relieving and easing to whatever degree we create the space beyond boundaries and mistaken views.This Dragon’s Heart Practice helps us to live as the dynamic and flowing expressions of reality that we are. As Trillium teacher Bill Miller puts it: “Fear is certainly part of our experience, but it doesn’t have to run the show.”
