Mindfulness has become a trendy term. Aspects of the original techniques taught by Buddha Shakyamuni have been excised from the fullness and discipline of those methods in order to become what is taught to children, those dealing with distraction or stress, or with pain. It is tremendous that any measure of mindfulness is being offered in these ways as training to so many people of all ages.
My aspiration with these online meditations and the training embedded within them is more of the pith of what he taught because, for example, stress cannot truly be managed unless one comes to the actual source of the stress – one’s mind-emotions, plus one’s choices.
Another example is used in this sitting: our present experience.
May all beings awaken.
