Mindfulness Meditation & Practices
Mindfulness is our inherent capacity of healing and renewal. It is
the basis for transforming ourselves and creating a more harmonious
family and society. To be mindful is to be aware of what is going on
in our body, in our feelings, in our mind and in the world, as we
avoid doing harm to ourselves and others.
With the help of conscious breathing - breathing and knowing we are
breathing - we are able to touch and be nourished by the peace and
joy that are available within and around us, in the here and now.
With continued practice, we shall touch and understand the roots of
the pain that lie deep within us, such as fear, anger, despair, thus
making transformation and healing possible.
The practice of mindfulness is the practice of love. Mindfulness relieves suffering because it is filled with understanding and compassion. When our mindfulness embraces those we love, they bloom like flowers.
