Schedule for Free Online Mindfulness Practice Sessions

Facilitating Mindfulness Online

There are certain limitations which arise in the context of online mindfulness. It is almost impossible for the teacher to pick up on subtle cues which might show that you are having a hard time or that you are starting to feel distressed.

As the participant, it is very important for you to listen to your own inner wisdom. If a practice is causing you to feel agitated or distressed, then you should stop.

Do you think peace requires an end to war
Or tigers eating only vegetables? Does peace require an absence from your boss, your spouse, yourself? Do you think peace will come some other place than here?
Some other time than now?
In some other heart than yours? Peace is this moment without judgement.
That is all. This moment in the heart-space where everything that is, is welcome. Peace is this moment without thinking that it should be some other way
That you should feel some other thing That your life should unfold according to your plans.
Peace is this moment without judgement. This moment in the heart-space where everything that is, is welcome.

This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
As an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
meet them at the door laughing and invite them in.
Be grateful for whoever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.
