Mindfulness practice helps us to cultivate a particular type of attention and awareness.
It can help us to become skilled observers of what’s going on in our often distracted and troubled minds and bodies. Through skillful practice we can get to know ourselves more intimately and thereby gain insights that can help us to use our minds more wisely.
Problematic habits such as attention-hopping; ruminating; brooding and emotional avoidance can be transformed. We can learn to become aware of and accept the present moment. This "Radical Acceptance" offers the possibility of profound personal change by simply learning to be - without being judgemental.
Compassion is based on the acceptance that not all pain can be avoided, denied or prevented. We can however, make it more tolerable.
Compassion includes kindness, empathy and acceptance. These in turn are supported by courage, tolerance and equanimity. We can cultivate the capacity to transform our experience in relation to suffering.
I teach a Wisdom and Compassion-Based Meditation. I facilitate a number of Drop-In-Meditation hours - Tuesday mornings at 10.30 in the Carrickpherish Library and
Wednesday evenings in Anjali Yoga Waterford, Lismore Park at 8.15.
These Meditation Hours are suitable for Beginners through to more Experienced Meditators.
