Opening to Love
Practicing loving-kindness and compassion allows you to be at peace in the midst of suffering.
Meaning of the Pali Word "Dana"
Dana is not payment for goods or services rendered; it is given from the heart.
Managing Fatigue with Mindfulness
Most of us dislike being fatigued and aren’t fully open to experiencing it. However, when we practice vipassana, we use mindfulness to see the dukkha (suffering) in all of our experiences; therefore, we can treat fatigue as one more experience that can be known.
Making Major Life Changes
Does your desire to make changes in your life come from wholesome motivation or unresolved issues?
Maintaining Mindfulness in Daily Life
We all have a tendency to rush to interpretation in our lives, and that can present a challenge to being mindful of our experience.
Lost in Doubt?
The antidote to doubt is faith, an active willingness to suspend self-judgment and to see for yourself what is true.
Living with Disappointment
If you choose to consciously accept life's disappointments, you will discover meaning in your suffering.
How to Meditate
Mindfulness meditation begins with learning to concentrate your attention on an object, typically the breath, which enables you to notice how your mind is reacting to what it is experiencing.
How Preferences Prejudice Your Perceptions
What you perceive from among all the stimuli in your environment is biased by your preferences, and your preferences are conditioned by past experiences.
Healing Your Mother (or Father) Wound
If you have unresolved feelings about your mother (or father), making them part of your mindfulness practice can transform what has been a hindrance in your life into a teacher.
