One of the many texts we can look to for ancient meditation teachings is The Yoga Sutra by Patanjali. Written 2200 years ago, the great sage Patanjali gathered the essence of yoga philosophy and practice and distilled it into 196 concise sentences - called sutras.

For many of us, one of the ultimate sutras is 3.34:

“By meditating on the heart, one gains complete knowledge of one’s mind.”

Today’s meditation practice is one of the guideposts that points us on our way to gaining complete knowledge of the mind.

These mini meditations are meant to support a daily home practice. Tune in every Monday to find your practice for the week! Full episodes are released every Thursday for a longer, deeper practice.
