'Whatever form of meditative practice we adopt, sooner or later it becomes a process of nondoing, an act of letting go. So why not sooner?'
— Dean, The Zen Commandments
N E W This 81-minute digital album is a recording of one of Dean's popular Tuesday night sessions in Santa Monica. Join in as he leads the group step by step, past self-defeating effort and limiting concepts, into the naturalness of resting as boundless, skylike awareness. Then, based on the experiences of this "nothing-doing" meditation, he guides the group into a deeper exploration of how we can continue to rest as awareness in every moment of our lives.

N E W , F R E E Virtually any experience — a sound, the breath, the sky — can be used as the entry point into natural meditation. In this new release for 2016, Dean leads a session in which the entry point is the sensation of the feet resting on the ground or floor. Afterward, even in the thick of activity, you can reestablish your connection with inner silence anytime, simply by reconnecting with this sensation.

This digital album features two guided practice sessions, one with eyes closed, one with eyes open.

Remastered for improved audio, June 2016.
'This is a powerful tool for cutting through the myriad pitfalls and diversions and going straight into the depths of pure meditative experience. Sluyter has a knack for making things simple; his clarity of instruction is remarkable, and his warmhearted openness encourages one to practice regularly, not in the spirit of doing homework or taking medicine, but as a joyous adventure.'
– Philip Goldberg, author, American Veda
