Every moment of true mindfulness is kind. This talk explores the possibility of cultivating a mind that can be with the reality of life. When we turn to experience with openness, we also become more open to insights, and our confidence in ourselves and our capacity for awakening becomes grounded in life.
It is possible to use our practice to keep away difficult emotions that we think are "bad" or "wrong" and this causes a split in our way of being in the world. When we practice a meditative approach to our emotions, we begin to wake up all parts of ourselves, and reclaim our humanity and our aliveness.
How intimately and mindfully connected are you too these most basic and universal experiences?... This body in its elemental nature... A composite of the earth, water, Fire and air elements? This talk is an exploration of the Buddha's primary teaching and a guided meditation in conjunction with this teaching.
