Meditation - Mindfulness - Engaged Practice
For me these three go hand in hand. Inseparably.
Practice nourishes and informs our live through reflection and inquiry. Community (Sangha) is where we share and learn from each other.
In my work I emphasize:
The importance to see for ourselves the tendencies which cause us harm, pain and suffering. Ancient teachings have much to contribute to a wise way of living.
To take refuge in mindfulness and to establish the support which comes through returning into bodily awareness.
Returning to the precious resources nature offers us. To cherish and treasure the beauty we can find in mindful walking, resting under the open skies and live a more simple way of life.
The healing and insightful power of meditative retreats. Opportunities to find rest and clarity over an extend period of time.
The importance of practicing in groups. We develop our capacities to express ourselves in compassionate ways and learn new ways to relate to each other. Practice in community helps us to overcome feelings of shame and guilt and reenter in honest conversation with each other.
