Anytime you pay attention to something, you become the host of that experience. Being a host gives you the opportunity to experience it more honestly, more authentically. Trillium Awakening teacher Allan Morelock offers a guided meditation that can help us to “host” our lived experiences. Starting from an object and flowing out to everything that surrounds us, he leads us to notice its tranquility and feel it within ourselves “not just mind but whole body.” In becoming the host to all sensations that arise in us gives us the opportunity to bring more honesty and authenticity to our experiences.

This guided meditation by Trillium Awakening teacher CC Leigh takes you deep. Starting with gentle rhythmic breathing, the breath is then directed, in turn, to the body locations that correspond to the three primary frequencies of embodying Consciousness: Awareness (head), Being (belly), and Heart (chest). Your noticing of, and access to, the felt senses of clarity, peace, and unconditional love is heightened, and the meditation concludes in the unbounded divine Heart of All where the frequencies mingle and radiate outward to friends, loved ones, community, and world.
In this guided meditation, Trillium Awakening teacher Fax Gilbert helps us to bring parts of ourselves and the things we carry into awareness in the felt sense of them in our bodies. Through this process, these parts may tell us that they want relief or relaxation. or maybe they just want to feel safety and security. Maybe we can even feel gratitude for them. Practicing in this way can assist us in meeting ourselves profoundly, and also lead us into a space ripe for self-inquiry.
What do we mean by subject and object when we’re speaking of realizing Consciousness? Which am I when I’m perceiving? How can I distinguish one from the other? Join Trillium Awakening teacher Ted Strauss as he answers these and other questions in this guided meditation that will help distinguish the subjective from the objective aspects of our being.
Join Trillium Awakening teacher June Konopka on this guided meditation through what she calls the “three fields of radiance: the field of Consciousness, the field of Love and Heart, and the field of Will and Creation. Focusing our attention on these areas can help shift our identity from the mind and body to our connection with the Source of everything. In doing this, we can experience a landing in Being that grants us empowerment and freedom.
Join Trillium Awakening teacher John Bottone in a combination of different practices in this guided meditation. In a blend of somatic presencing and Vipassana, John leads us through noticing sensations within the body as we scan within from head to toe. This practice helps us become more grounded in our bodies, and from this place to deepen in our meditation practice.
Join Trillium Awakening teacher Sandra Glickman as she honors the Divine Mother, the one who holds and nurtures us throughout our lives. This is an invitation to open into the arms of divine Being and put our trust into our ever changing reality. This simple mantra – “I Don’t Know,” can help us relax out of constantly grasping for meaning and control over what is happening in our lives.
Join Fairfield teacher, Steve Boggs in this enlightening talk about the very nature of Tantra. “The material world is not a mirage, and not a trap, but an integral part of ultimate reality that has a unique and indispensible role to play in the embodied awakening process.”
This talk from a virtual sitting in May, 2019, examines this essential part of the Trillium dharma. In Sugandhi’s brief talk, she characterizes greenlighting as “recognizing and allowing what is buried in the basement that needs to come into the light.” The talk includes a guided “recognition meditation” to help you bringing your hidden parts out of the basement.
