Why Join a Mindfulness Community?
When we come together to listen to the Dharma, shifts begin to happen…
We learn to bring curiosity to the places that are difficult
We begin to notice how views, beliefs and opinions close off the mind and heart
How defensiveness affects the body, mind and heart and how to open our hearts to what is painful.
As we practice in community and walk this path together the feeling of being a separate self dissolves.
Developing a consistent practice strengthens our ability to stay present for all of life’s experiences (joy, sorrow, etc)
We learn to shift from reacting in ways that divide and hurt us to responding in ways that connect and heal.
