Description

Living With Awareness: Practical Techniques for Cultivating Mindfulness is a 28-day meditation event exploring the practice of mindfulness.

Mindfulness is the gentle effort to be continuously present with our experience. When we’re not mindful, we get carried away with our thoughts and emotions, which leads to stress, anxiety, depression, anger, and distractedness.

When the quality of mindfulness is present, we have a greater ability to choose our thoughts and emotions. It has been clinically proven to reduce stress, promote feelings of wellbeing, and improve mental and physical health.

What other participants have said

  • “This is really to say thanks. For me, one key revelation is that we do often have a choice (e.g. to become angry or not).” Michael B.
  • “The practice of noting whether everything I am experiencing is pleasant, painful or neutral has taken me to far more mindful states than I’ve been in previously.” James R.
  • “Thank you Bodhipaksa for this month of sharing your insight. It’s been so useful for me in a number of ways. It’s reminded me of things I’d let slip. It’s given me some invaluable new tools that I’m endeavoring to use daily.” Chrisy C
