I’m certified to teach Mindfulness or Vipassana Meditation. It is usually done seated and simply requires the meditator to observe his/her thoughts and then let them go. Mindfulness has a way of guiding us back to the present, where we need to be. Nothing can hide from the light that meditation and mindfulness brings to the dark spaces of our consciousness. Anyone with the knowledge of how to see through self-illusions and the ability to look deep inside themselves will have a more harmonious life filled with love and compassion. Mindfulness is an all-encompassing and life-changing skill that can remind us of our own power and purpose, but above all else it is supposed to be simple. By simply being gentle with ourselves and intending loving friendliness towards others, we will stop grasping at what we think we want. We will instead become aware of what we and others need, simplifying life overall. Choosing the path of awareness is a commitment to truth. When mindfulness is present, denial or distraction cannot exist.
“Never mind what I have been taught. Forget about theories and prejudices and stereotypes. I want to understand the true nature of life. I want to know what this experience of being alive really is. I want to apprehend the true and deepest qualities of life and I don’t want to just accept somebody else’s explanation. I want to see it for myself.” – Bhante Gunaratana
