    Living Life Fully

    Finding Sanity and Goodness in the Unpredictable

    • by
    • Bill Karelis
    We are all imprisoned by the projections of our minds, and we all have the power to free ourselves. To gain this freedom, we must do three things: know that we are imprisoned, investigate how we entrap ourselves, and discover how to overcome our habitual patterns. The discipline of the sitting practice of meditation can lead us through such a process. Meditation doesn’t have to be heavy or ambitious.… Read More

    Gampopa’s Heart Advice on the Path of Mahamudra

    • by
    • Ringu Tulku

    Aligned, Relaxed, Resilient

    The Physical Foundations of Mindfulness

    • by
    • Will Johnson
    The emphasis on the mind in meditation can be somewhat misleading: If we pay attention only to mental processes and overlook the experience of the body, we can remain stuck in our heads and not be able to break free of the involuntary thinking that we find so claustrophobic and toxic. This short, practical guide helps us embrace the fact of our embodiment—the experience of the sensations, movements, and gestures… Read More

    Stopping and Seeing

    A Comprehensive Course in Buddhist Meditation

    • by
    • Chih-i

In essence, "stopping and seeing" refers to stopping delusion and seeing truth, processes back to basic Buddhist practice. One of the most comprehensive manuals written on these two essential points of Buddhist meditation is "The Great Stopping and Seeing," a monumental work written by sixth-century Buddhist master Chih-i. … Read More
