LEVEL IV – GREEN BELT – STRETCH
Green signifies the plant as it grows – reaching toward the sun – and matures. A green belt student embodies primordial confidence and refines their techniques.
Having further awakened our minds and hearts in Expand, we continue our journey by allowing our natural curiosity to show us more of our world outside the parameters of our usual fears. Connecting and communicating with the world more directly also connects us to our hearts and allows us to acknowledge how we respond to experience. Rather than regenerating habitual patterns, our reactions are reminders to wake up further. We will explore a meditation practice that teaches us to apply the mind of meditation to the challenges of everyday life. With this expanded meditation practice, our lives become filled with more options, more potential, and more chances to see the world with confidence, patience, and generosity. Meeting the world in this way, without hope and fear, provides resources of steadiness and energy. This brings love for the journey.
