Fire

During winter, temperature will be low after sunset. It’s an opportunity to meditate with the fire. Yes, we can make a camp fire. Experience to meditate around a camp fire is also exceptional. Sound of the fire is also very nice to listen. It’s so calm and relaxed. Brightness of fire helps very much to visualize a bright object inside our body.
