Animals are the masters of meditation. They each have their own technique. Some are loungers, some stand up, looking as though they might be napping when in fact they are in nirvana and others sit in repose while suspended within another timeless dimension.
One of my favorite experiences is to be with an animal who is obviously meditating and to meditate with them..in order to join them in that wonderland of quiet, peace and unbelievable mystery.
The next time you see your horse doing a standing nap or your cat zoning or your dog relaxing, sit by them and slow your breathing, quiet your mind and ask if you can join them in their revere. It will soothe your soul and bring you untold healing.
