Mindfulness

“Mindfulness is essentially a Teaching about the integration of love, calm, insight and compassion without conditions of belief or ritual… Calm is a major feature of mindfulness. Calm forms the vessel for insight and experience; learning requires calm.”
– Chimé Shore

Tarchin Hearn

Classical Mindfulness

The Satipatthana text begins with where to meditate and how to sit. It then directs us to an exploration of the physical body through Anapanasati or mindfulness of breathing – Tarchin Hearn

Metta

“The practice of loving-kindness is one of the excellent tools to train the mind to move in the way of joy, choosing to live each moment with an open heart. When one practices honesty – that is, accepting what is present – and develops a habit of investigating what is given freely without mental revulsion, happiness will grow.” – Cecilie Kwiat

Study Mind

“Relax into space-presence. Now, deeply look, again and again, utterly steady and without thoughts. Bust through the stillness to the stripped away mind of unimpeded vividness. When we do, wisdom will dawn, and compassion blossoms. With or without thoughts, with or without appearances of the mind—no matter, no clinging. This is Great Love.” Lama Mark Webber
