"Mindfulness is simply being aware
of what is happening right now
without wishing it were different;
enjoying the pleasant without holding
on when it changes (which it will);
being with the unpleasant without the
fear that it will always be this way
(which it won't)."
Mindfulness is the process of steadying, training, and quieting the mind to see what is actually happening around us and within us, in our minds, hearts and bodies. By paying attention in this way, the tension in the mind and the stress in the body have the possibility to decrease.
As our awareness develops, we learn to see more clearly and deliberately, we increase our capacity for curiosity, expand our tolerance and resilience, and decrease the mind’s habitual patterns of unhelpful judgments and internal criticism. We experience more space and become more warm and kind towards ourselves and others.
Through our direct experience, we learn the difference between the judgmental mind and the discerning mind, harmful self-talk and internal guidance.
Developing mindfulness leads us to our innately clear minds and our naturally kind hearts allowing us to act skillfully, wisely and effectively.
It’s important to recognize that mindfulness is not about becoming a better person. It’s about becoming fully aware of whatever is happening, whether we like it or not, whether it’s pleasant or painful, and finding some ease even within difficulty.
Room to breathe
We meet in the virtual space of Zoom for one hour in the morning from 9-10 am, of course on Saturdays.... And we'll do different kinds of meditations, some guided, sometimes silence, sometimes a nice video for the inspiration, but mostly just giving ourselves time to relax and settle our minds.
