4 Tips for Presence

Hi, welcome back to

your Daily Mindfulness.

In today's session, I want to

talk about four things to consider

when meeting the present moment.

So this is an acronym that can help us

specifically meet a more difficult moment.

And the acronym is SATA, S-A-T-A, stands

for surrender, allow, trust and accept.

What I like about this acronym is

it, is it creates a very spacious

internal container in relationship

to what is moving through us.

Sense of surrender.

It's an openness.


This is what's here now.

Allowing also has this permission for

experience to move through us as it is.

Trust, making space for this is

going to be good for us over time.

In the sense of the opposite of it

being suppression, pushing away.

All of that is going to

create internal blocks.

And then acceptance this acknowledgement

of this moment it's like this.

Surrender, allow, trust, accept.

I think it's important to take this

perspective more in relationship

to your internal experience of how

you're processing what is arising.

I think suggestions like this, get

a little more complicated when it's

related to an external experience.

Like you see something going on around

you that doesn't feel just, and then

we go, okay, well, I'm supposed to

just surrender, allow trust and accept.

No, that's not what this is pointing to.

This is more pointing to how you're

holding your internal experience.

And if anything, what that does is

it validates the internal experience.

And then the next response might

be something in relationship to

what's happening that says like, I'm

going to do something about this.

So this isn't passivity.

This is more how you can meet a moment

internally as it's arising to you in

a way that is spacious, grounding, and

integrating, rather than pushing away,

fighting, resisting, or getting caught

up in some sort of contraction, which

just ends up creating more tension.

So I'll give it to you again.

SATA, surrender, allow, trust, accept.

A little practice.

See if it fits into your mindfulness

practice and serves you in a positive way.

Thank you for your practice.

Let's settle in for today's meditation.
