Mindfulness practice helps one look at life with open and receptive awareness. It can bring a lovely clarity of how, as we cling to past and future, we miss the mystery of the present moment. As we sit mindfully our sorrows and fears often arise and with our breath we can soften these thoughts and feelings and come to understand our suffering. This brings us to acceptance which allows us to relax and open to the reality as it is. Acceptance is a courageous step in the process of transformation. When we live in this way, our heart expands and rests in the river of compassion and loving kindness.
Share in a day of contemplative stillness, mindfulness practice, and soulful sharing. Lunch is enjoyed in silence.
