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.
All MTAI members are bound by our code of ethics. We recognise the limitations of mindfulness based interventions as well as the many benefits. We are committed to constantly improving the standard of teaching through the MTAI continuing professional development programme and we strive to ensure that all our members are “trauma informed”.
We offer all our meditations for free but if you would like to contribute to one of our nominated charities please see links below:
Don’t go outside your house to see flowers.
My friend, don’t bother with that excursion.
Inside your body there are flowers.
One flower has a thousand petals.
That will do for a place to sit.
Sitting there you will have a glimpse of beauty
inside the body and out of it,
before gardens and after gardens.
