guided sunyata (emptying the mind) meditation

The following meditation is my interpretation of the Buddha's wonderful teaching known as The Shorter Teaching on Emptiness. It describes how, though a series of patient reflections, we can gradually shift our attention from the busy world around us to realms of serenity and emptiness. I find it a wonderful practice, and have lead many practitioners through it on retreats. I've made it as streamlined and concrete as possible (the original teaching struck me as somewhat abstract and vague.) It was recorded live on at Dharmapunx NYC, Greenpoint meeting, Monday November 2nd, 2015.
