THE PRACTICE: Mindfulness Awareness meditation is the heart of Buddhist practice at every level, from beginner to advanced. The benefits are profound: peace of mind, greater clarity and intelligence, and increased compassion for oneself and for others.
Meditation practice can increasingly free us from the pernicious, anxiety-driven, and distorted stories we repeatedly tell ourselves. It can help us see life “as it is,” freshly and vividly, free of egotism and petty value-judgment. It can lead us to what Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche called “the world of ordinary magic.”
We will explore mindfulness-awareness practice and traditional teachings that describe it In plain speech for real life.
