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!

Recording and Listening has been an integral part of the Awareness Practice opportunities we are offered. In the Yearlong Retreat we have been asked to practice with assignments to help pay attention, as well as direct the attention and then Record and Listen what we see. In workshops, too, there are places to pause, do an exercise and then record our experience and insights. 



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
