Active Meditation Stimuli/ Starting Image:

a person on a hill in the desert

My father in the rain forest, or Bryce Canyon
Dressed in full explorer garb
A long path snakes down along the green cliffside
A voice calls from beneath, singing
Fragments, barely recognizable
He father traces down the path, brushing aside vines
The blue blob springs to life, dramatically
A large water spirit, splashing hair
A women
She hands him a golden baby, in a bubble of light
As he touches it, the bubble shimmers away

My father carries the baby onwards
Into a large Egyptian tomb
A giant statue guards the path ahead
Cuphead fight
He dodges monkey’s bananas and penguins
Heading towards the boss
He tears it aside like a giant veil


My father passes beyond, a glass tube, under the ocean
An elevator leads up
A desert: where to go
The elevator leads up further
The sand rushes into the hole left behind
The ground disappears
The Earth is a giant, purple, rubber ball
Through the clouds: to heaven
God’s pearly gates arching hive above

My father passes by a long line and the guard
He was on business
Heaven Town, cloud houses
There is no shadow in heaven
Up to a glistening tower, pink iridescent green
Up the stairs
A giant snake is coiled around the tower
It’s head: a giant, armored, Amazonian woman
Looking in, red dragon’s lion’s mane
Mom?

Omer Keinan

A man standing on a hill in the desert.

I see him from far away, his body’s silhouette, he is watching the sunrise. It’s the edge of a cliff. I hear the sound of my own steps, walking on little stones towards him. I don’t know how his face looks like, his body is rather skinny and looks a bit like an animated science fiction character. I wear boots. I get close to him and as I do that, he disappears. I’m then alone at the edge of the cliff and I observe the rocks, I know this place. There is a road leading down the valley to a pond and I start walking towards it, but I suddenly sink down into darkness, I can’t see. I feel my body shifting and dancing, my head dropping. I wake up again as a rap song playing in my head, something like- ‘but when it happens then it’s right, it’s left then it’s right, it’s left then it’s right…’ I feel a warm, heavy touch on my lower belly and it turns me on, it feels like a hand, but when my sight comes back I see it’s the man standing with his boots, one on my chest and one on my lower belly. I still can’t see his face, he is tall.

And the following participants: 

Raz Mantell, Uri Shinitsky 

S: “Are you lonely?”

            Man: “Yes.”

S: “Do you mean harm?”

            Man: “Yes.”

S: “Should I leave?”

            Man: “Yes.”

 

I turn around and away from the man and see a rainbow which is the milky way. I go to it and meet a white unicorn that starts licking my skin and cleaning it from layers of dirt. A green snake comes out from my belly button, and I ask: “What now?”. As a response I get: “Listen.” So, I do and turn into rain that falls down to Earth and I feel what the grass and the ants feel on their skin, to be touched by me, as rain. Now, I meet another man, a different one, he tells me his name is Michael and we exchange greetings. I ask if I can hug him and that hug turns into a dance, a couple one. A white marble ball drops out from my heart and as it touches the earth it multiplies into millions, covering the ground. Those balls then enter through the feet of people, travelling up their bodies to come out again through their mouths. This makes the people to walk with a bit of a hunch back, and the white marble balls form visible circles, loops that just go around and around. I find the image quite beautiful. I look up to the skies and see that the stars are falling, almost like rain.

This is when I see my mother, she is tiny, curled up and hurt. I bury her deep into the earths warmth so that she is protected. I am back at the hill with the man and discover that he is my father, and he is lost. So, I take his hand and take him to a garden. He doesn’t want me to leave but I must, so I give him a book which we burn. He then steps into the fire to burn himself and the flames turn purple and reach me. As I am burning, I find myself swimming in the ocean with my two sisters. Each of us find a different shore. At the shore I reach, Michael is waiting for me, and he makes that clear. I ask, “What now?”, and he answers, “hear.”

Gal Varon

00:00 / 13:06

Ruby Frances Jones

The ground cracked around his/her feet. The person remained motionless a top the dune. The sand shattered like ice, the person fell through into a body of water. As the person sunk through the Ice cold (what seemed to be a) lake, at the bottom was a sense that the bed of the lake was boiling. She/he was sucked through the Lava like quick sand only quicker and burning. Falling through the magma the person seemed to slow and and rung around their neck was a rope and there the person hung. As the previous dimension disappeared, it left a single ember slowly burning through the noose, she remained without struggle. The rope finally snapped and let the person fall, without a change in the surroundings he fell and kept falling. Finally he/she was able to want and she/he wanted to be back, motionless a top the Dune.
