It was a big disappointment that I wasn't well enough last Sunday to join you and give the talk I announced a week ago. But I was very glad Walt Opie could step in and carry the teachings in my stead.
I still mean to talk about everyday mindfulness, so here's what I wrote about it last week (with a new date):
Our meditation practice is a powerful training that can lead to the end of dissatisfaction. We often forget that this path to contentment runs through what we might regard as the "ordinary:" our normal daily lives.
Just as in formal meditation, daily life practice brings mindfulness to whatever arises. In the process, the "ordinary" is often quite transformed.
Please join us this Sunday, Oct. 25, with your friends and stories about your practice of everyday mindfulness.
Looking forward to seeing you again,
