Kasinas and elemental meditations

Hi all.
I’m wondering if anyone here has any experience using Kasinas as described in the Visuddhimagga?
Elemental meditations in Suttas?
Sutta suggestions?

I sometimes use a blue disc ( kasina ), but I really just use it as a visual object to concentrate on. I’ve also tried using a candle flame ( fire element? ).
I don’t think there is much on this in the suttas.

I was sort of thinking about attending to the perception of earth, the perception of forrest ect. Also the Buddha saying be unperturbed like the earth, but yes it is possible that I will print a coloured disk… Thank you very much for your contribution whippet. :slight_smile:

When walking by the sea I sometimes practice mindfulness of the elements, eg the wind on my face, the sun on my face ( only occasionally on the East coast of England! ), the pressure of the earth at my feet and the sight of moving water ( or raindrops on my head! ). And the space around me.
