Day 1 of 2018 Zen and Mindfulness Retreat at Deer Park Institute
Have you ever been fascinated by mindfulness? Have you ever tried it but found it difficult to remain in that state and wondered why? If your answer is yes, this is the talk for you. Because you know from your own experience that speaking sweetly about mindfulness is never helpful enough. Then what should we do? “We need a strategy,” says Ven. Yamashita. Our mind acts quite contrary to what mindfulness entails. But there is a solution. This Dharma talk invites you to understand how our mind operates in order to understand mindfulness.
Note: If you are interested in the subtle body meditation mentioned in the Dharma talk, you can try it with the guided meditation instruction available at https://en.onedhamma.com/meditation-2/
