This Week's Practice

Hell o Everyone,

Thank you so much for coming last night and cozying up in the intimate space at Island Yoga. It was an inspiring evening for me.

This week, think about practicing with Patience- Patient Forbearance where we endure with what is true at that moment and Patient Acceptance of the Truth where we remain calm even while watching our mind act out when for example we hear about an outcome that didn't meet our expectations.

We can also think about working with frustration and remembering to do our best to halt our mind's tendency to blame and instead be with the feelings of frustration in the body and really get curious about how it manifests.

Suttas for Mind Training: Two Kinds of Thoughts (MN), The Fire Sermon (MN) Satipatthana Sutta (MN) Four Noble Truths, The Six Sense Spheres, The 5 Aggregates and many others but these are good starters to start looking at, hearing talks about, etc.

May you all have a good week,



with metta, Pauletta
