The first foundation of mindfulness: The Body. We discuss the aspect of the four postures:sitting, standing, walking and lying down.... and everything in between these postures. A dynamic way to come to liberation...and one that the Buddha tells us we cannot do without if we aspire to freedom.
We explore compassion and practice to help us respond to difficulties particularly pain and suffering. We examine the distinction between pain and suffering, the nature of compassion, receptive and active compassion, the shadow of compassion and some types of compassion practice.
This talk explores stress-related emotional suffering and how mindfulness and compassion practices can serve our children’s natural intelligence, creativity and openheartedness. Trainings in presence are the hope for this next generation, and the healing of our world.
