Our hearts and brains contain a lot we don’t know is there. We bring along our backpacks full of things, and this course helped us empty some of the stuff that has been stored away. In our busy everyday lives, we don’t manage to sort out everything.
Like dreams at night and slips of the tongue during the day, the loss of the meditation sound during meditation brings us into a fertile no-man's land where conscious and unconscious impulses intermingle. In contrast to dreams, meditation brings us closer to the unconscious while we are still awake and aware. While dreams provide much-needed mental hygiene, meditation goes one step further and helps us clearing new ground.
