Listening meditation is included in our Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction program. It's a great practice for looking at preferences,conceptualization, and how easily our mental habits can "drive the bus" of perception and evaluation. In Listening Meditation we practice receiving sounds as a neutral experience of perception: hearing sounds as "just sounds." This strengthens the ability to approach life in a less judgmental, more accepting way. Listening Meditation is also one of the options in the Anchoring Meditation - it's a useful alternative to breath awareness for grounding and centering in the present moment.
