Mindfulness In Action
We all have the natural capacity to be mindful and aware. With mindfulness we can bring ourselves back to the present moment, and our awareness tells us when that is necessary. To practice mindfulness and awareness we offer what we call Mindfulness In Action. The Mindfulness In Action practices are contemplative practices that provide an opportunity to remember and practice the four foundations of mindfulness: Body, Feelings, Mind, and Truth.
speaking from the heart
…To allow room for what we usually push against. To open.
Training the heart muscle, the chitta, to open.
That which is so scared, so frozen, training it to open…
– Pema Chödrön
In daily life it can be difficult to put words to and express our deeper feelings. In a Speaking from the Heart circle we learn to be mindful of our feelings, drop our story of past and future, and to express what is here in our heart in this very moment.
Speaking from the Heart is speaking our microscopic truth. It gives us the chance to become aware of what it is that we are actually feeling.
It lets us be more real and vulnerable than we normally allow ourselves to be in relation to ourselves and others.
Our basic goodness is allowed to show and be recognized.
When we really open up and speak from our heart we come closer to ourselves and to others.
In this way a Speaking from the Heart circle can strengthen our relationship with ourselves and bring us closer to others.

A person experiences life as something separated from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of consciousness.
Our task must be to free ourselves from this self-imposed prison, and through compassion, to find the reality of Oneness.
– Albert Einstein
When we find ourselves in a situation where our buttons are being pushed, we can choose to repress or act out, or we can choose to practice. If we can start to do the exchange, breathing in with the intention of keeping our hearts open to the embarrassment or fear or anger that we feel, then to our surprise we find that we are also open to what the other person is feeling. Open heart is open heart.
– Chögyam Trungpa
Each of us has a living Buddha within. It is the ultimate democracy. But it is hidden beneath layers of hope and fear, doubt and distraction, and especially the habit of not paying attention to what is happening within you and around you, right now. You must gently but persistently peel away these layers, so that you experience the rich nourishment at your core. No one else can do this for you.
