When you don’t punish or condemn yourself, when you relax more and appreciate your body and mind, you begin to contact the fundamental notion of basic goodness in yourself. So it is extremely important to be willing to open yourself to yourself. Developing tenderness toward yourself allows you to see both your problems and your potential accurately. You don’t feel that you have to ignore your problems or exaggerate your potential. That kind of gentleness toward yourself and appreciation of yourself is very necessary. It provides the ground for helping yourself and others. ~ Chögyam Trungpa
Mindfulness training is a process of developing our ability to be more connected to ourselves. The intention is that with more connection and awareness there is more access to possibilities. Our usual state of mind is cluttered with obstacles. At our mental level, our mind has deeply ingrained beliefs about the world and ourselves that limit our ability to apprehend reality and take action. At our emotional level, we have a multitude of contractions that take our energy and rob others of theirs. At a spiritual level, we have loose connection with the part of our being that is able to give us strength and equanimity.
During our sessions I will help you explore the ways your whole being has conflict with life itself. The purpose of mindfulness training is to become so in tune with life, that there is no separation between yourself and life force itself.
I have over 10 years of intense mindfulness practice, having studied with Vipassana and Zen teachers. I have also spent the last 10 years studying the way western psychology and Buddhist psychology can work together to help us unlock the ability to become who we really are.
