Cultivating connections

MINDFULNESS MEDITATION

‘The most precious thing we can give to another is our presence, which contributes to the collective energy of mindfulness and peace.’

Waiting times

Many of us do yearn for a sense of stillness among all the rushing around, some time for quiet reflection and rest.

An antidote to busyness

‘Zazen (sitting meditation) is in and of itself the alternative to our usual state of grasping, clinging, and goal-orientated life in general. By sitting down, we have arrived.’ Barry Magid

The middle way

The middle way is like a perfectly tuned violin string – not so taut that it produces a shrill sound, but also not too lose so it can’t be played on.

Uncertainty

When we approach uncertainty as an opportunity for further exploration, it becomes a place of creative possibility.

Magnanimous mind

The magnanimous mind invites us to take a wider perspective rather than getting constantly bogged down in the minutiae of everyday life.
