Play as Being in a Nutshell

    About Play as Being

    Play as Being is a playful shared adventure around the theme of Being. “Playing as Being” points to an exploration of reality. When we switch from what we have to what we are, what do we find?

    Roughly each quarter of an hour, we spend about nine seconds on this type of exploration (there are 900 seconds in 15 minutes, hence the 1% tax). During this time, take a full breath, relax, and focus on considering yourself as Being.

    Think of it as taking a 9-second moment, or a micromeditation, between tasks during your day. Don’t get hung up on following the schedule – any amount of this type of play is helpful.

    Play as Being was started by Second Life resident Pema Pera, and is run now with help from volunteers known as Guardians. You can read snippets from some of our daily discussion excerpts , and glimpse some examples of how the practice has changed our real life.

    Guidelines for meetings

    This is an open group discussion about topics related to the method of playing as being, meditation in general, and mindfulness. People with many different backgrounds and interests visit the group. If you join a Play as Being group discussion, please be respectful of each person’s feelings and opinions and allow everyone to say what’s on their minds.

Repeated distractions from the chosen topics of discussion, meanness, vulgarity, or violent language are not constructive to the group's purpose.
