Jeannie invites participants to notice the aspects of the present moment and to give everything to the moment, softening and resting in simplicity. She talks about how conditioning causes us to develop habits of numbing, dulling and distracting from the moment, and that these habits are largely unconscious. She talks about meditation as a way to open to the organic force of life below our strategies to manage the moment.
