Hello, dear meditator,
Probably the most frequent question I hear from you guys is, “Why am I so bad at showing up for my meditation practice?” In this video, I try to offer some advice about what may be missing. Spoiler alert: it is not self-discipline.
It turns out we need three components to keep our practice consistent. However, we usually only think about one of them. The other two are right at your fingertips!
This is the program you have been asking me for over the last 5 years. It took a long time for the curriculum to come together in my mind because I didn’t want to offer anything half-baked or uncertain. Introduction to the Open Heart Path is many things: an overview of the Buddhist path, an immersive journey into your own personal path, and an examination of what it really means to live a mindful life. It begins on March 20 with an hour-long introduction and then we’ll meet each subsequent week for 90 minutes.
This program is not for everyone. There are practice requirements. Homework. Writing assignments. If you’ve been wanting to explore the spiritual power of meditation (not just the self-help benefits), this is for you. I would love to see you there.
