Mindfulness

It's not just a trendy word. It's a tool that, when correctly used, helps us to discern our habitual reactions and distractions by way of present moment awareness. With this awareness we can begin to understand how we think and how we react to feelings and perceptions. We are enslaved by habitual reactions. Mindfulness

Mindfulness Training and Meditation

Meditation has many benefits but we will focus on awareness, inner stillness and realization. This is the Buddha's Teaching for Awakening. There are two basic methods of  concentration in the Buddha's dispensation: vipassana and samatha. While there are many who see concrete and irreconcilable boundaries between them and many who adhere to one method and shun the other, I believe the Noble Eightfold Path includes and utilizes both.

Voluntary Simplicity

Letting go of the clutter prepares the mind for letting go. First we get rid of what we don't want, what we don't like and then we begin to let go of the unnecessary which we may be attached to. Voluntary simplicity is a life of generosity toward all sentient beings, including ourselves.
