Recording and Listening: a powerful tool for ending suffering

Cheri HuberRecording and Listening is, hands down, the most powerful tool for ending suffering I’ve found. When I say this to people the reaction is often, “What about meditation?” Yes, unquestionably meditation is what will take us from Samsara to Nirvana. But Recording and Listening is what enables us to meditate in a way that will take us from Samsara to Nirvana!

Recently, I began making mini recordings when I am in a beautiful place.

I give myself one to two minutes to use all of my senses and describe what I am seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, touching, and feeling. I love listening to the person who was completely present and I go there with them when I hear their descriptions.



Recording and Listening was developed by Zen Teacher Cheri Huber. It is a powerful tool to redirect the attention; expand awareness; and access the wisdom, love, and compassion that is our True Nature. For more about Zen Awareness Practice visit
