New guided meditation with ambient music with Ram Dass “Awareness” is out now! Listen here.
One of my dear friends Strangeloop made a beautiful video accompaniment with imagery of Ram Dass.
We started working on this in the beginning of lockdown and each day in the studio tuned of my internal compass. The words of Ram Dass feel more potent now than ever, and even just hearing his voice drops me back into the moment. We hope it does the same for you.
The sounds of traffic were left in there intentionally—at first I started to remove them, but ultimately it was the perfect metaphor. You won’t always have a perfect place to practice or to do your work.
Especially right now, each day has a new set of uncertainty and obstacles—we can deal with this skillfully from a place of loving awareness. This isn’t a tool to spiritually bypass our daily life but to greet it all with compassion to better be of service to ourselves and others.⠀
Thanks to all of you for listening and sharing this. More of these meditations on the way soon.
I’ll be playing this live today on the Ram Dass Instagram at 5pm PST.
This digital storybook Pala is stunning. It’s about the overlap of startup tech culture and the legalization of psychedelics. If you’re interested in this space at all, worth a read.
One of my favorite artists Jon Hopkins put out a new ambient track and it is as good as you’d expect. Great for meditation or deep-work.
