We can practice sitting on a chair or cushion. We can practice while walking, or doing some manual work, even while interacting with animals or people. A big part of my practice has been service, which cultivates mindfulness in a rich variety of contexts. Doing service as practice directly supports our ability to remain mindful as we live each day, while cultivating metta, compassion, sympathetic joy and equanimity.
This Sunday, 7-8:30 pm, I'll talk about ways to help others (including the whole planet) so that service becomes part of our overall practice. Please bring friends and stories to share about your experiences of mindful service.
