Listen now
At the cusp of a new calendar year, it’s easy to place our attention on things we’d like to change about ourselves. In today’s meditation however, Rohan encourages us to see the abundance of right now instead of what’s lacking, by putting our focus on each new breath, sound, thought, and sensation. It’s a celebration of the new that’s perfect for welcoming the fresh new year, or for anytime you might feel stuck in a loop.
