Embodied Mindfulness Practice

     What does it mean to to be a Mindfulness Mentor?  To me it means cultivating a warm inner awareness that enriches all aspects of life.  It means linking meditation practice with mindfulness in daily life.  It means embracing a balanced and harmonic movement practice.  My overall goal is to share what I have learned about embodying physical awareness, calming the emotions, and resting in the mind.

     The science of mindfulness can be taught.  It includes several key points:

Establishing a training methodology

Learning to bring an insightful point of view into the workings of the mind and the body

Sustaining a practice with consistency of intention and rhythm

Examining our assumptions about the realms of the brain, the body and the mind

To what degree are they, indeed, integrated realms?

How might their apparent separateness be integrated?

How do we rest in the body? In the mind?

How do we cultivate a plastic, flexible brain? 

How do we tease apart the elements of thinking and feeling and sensation in our awareness?

What sort of momentum (regular practice) is needed in our spiritual practice to learn to enjoy the peace that passes all understanding?

     Some of us have been working with these questions for a long time, and we can point the way for others who are drawn in the same directions. As current brain research opens new horizons and new fields of inquiry, the practice of mindfulness can support an integrated approach to all these questions.

Wisdom of Tai Chi

When no wind at all

    disturbs the kiri tree —

      the leaves that fall!

Leaves of ivy

    Every one astir —

     The autumn wind

The autumn wind

    Resounds in the mountain –
