• Hello my fellow friends!

    There’s a lot of great material out there to spark insights (insights and Insights :)) into the truth of reality. In particular, I find a few that I’ve found on No-Self quite interesting and thought provoking. Would love to see any that you’ve found useful. Here are a few that I like:

    Sam Harris, quite an intelligent and…[Read more]

  • This is exactly what I was looking for. Thanks!

  • Thanks for sharing Becky! When you start to gain some momentum, it certainly is addicting. But yes, without guidance, one can quickly become freaked out by these novel experiences and call it quits. Happy to hear that you decided to have another crack at it!

  • Hello All!

    Just curious to hear about some of the benefits that you’ve noticed over the time you’ve been practicing meditation and mindfulness in daily life. I think it will be inspirational for many to hear of the potential positive impacts to our lives!

    Some of mine have been:

    1. A generally reduced sense of stress and anxiety
    2. Catching…[Read more]

  • Ahh, gotcha. Glad you found what you were looking for!

  • Hi Frederic,

    Thanks for the feedback. I am doing my best with positive reinforcement. The difficult part is, I need to unlearn something I’ve been doing 99.999% of my life!

    Regarding your advice around renewing intention before a triggering situation, how do I know when a triggering situation will occur? Do you mean situations like meetings…[Read more]

  • Hello Chris,

    Thank you for your thoughtful response!

    – During my lunch break, I generally try to meditate, and I definitely feel like it gives a momentum push for the rest of the day.

    – Mindful Review is a good idea, I’ll try to see if I can incorporate this into my practice.

    – When I am disagreeing with a co-worker, that’s when being…[Read more]

  • Thank you Frederic, this is exactly what I needed!

    Becky, I’m definitely going to check this out soon – much appreciated!!

  • I’m starting to realize that Frederic is very correct on this point:

    “Similarly, I had to let go of the desire for results. I wanted to build the “joy of being a practicioner”. Attitudes of curiosity and playfulness are seriously helpful, and are prepping you for the days when difficulties will come up. Relax. I mean it.”

    I think about med…[Read more]

  • Hello Becky,

    //novice alert, but I can give sleep advice//

    I have had bouts of insomnia in the past. I also had similar anxieties about the techniques learned in TMI becoming an impediment to my sleeping patterns. I’m about 3 months into my practice and I can say that it just hasn’t been the case that my sleep has been negatively affected (I…[Read more]

  • Thank you Chloe! Your post was extremely reassuring and helpful!! I like your comment about not worrying about worst case scenario and concentrating on what’s more likely to happen. It’s just that this is such new ground to me, that I’m a bit anxious about challenging my fundamental beliefs.

    I would like to have a teacher – one that is familiar…[Read more]

  • Hello all!

    It makes a lot of sense that our practice needs to continue in between meditation sessions, as this is the other 95% of the day!

    I tend to be the least mindful while at work. When the work starts to pile up, I tend to go into go-mode. To a certain degree, I think it’s unavoidable – when it needs to get done, it needs to get done.…[Read more]

  • Hello all! First post here!

    Firstly, I want to say that Culadasa’s teachings have changed my life. It’s only been three months, but the amount of positive change introduced to my life has been extraordinary! Thank you to Culadasa and his sangha.

    I have been drawn to meditation to become a better person. In general, I’d like to think of myself…[Read more]
