Mindfulness Meditation & Stress Reduction

IMG_0779Daily life, by its very nature, is rarely going to present itself to us like a well-tended garden. Intense emotional reactivity tends to arise when try to bend life to our liking, and where there is reactivity, there is often prolonged suffering and bewilderment.

We can all point to places in our lives where we become ruled by habits of thought, habits of behavior, fear and frustration- it’s all very human and real. However, we needn’t let ourselves get too lost in our suffering and, to this end, there is good news…..

We have within us an enormous capacity for resiliency and deepening equanimity. We don’t need to seek hidden caves and avoid the very things that trip us up; instead we can learn to meet life on life’s terms with increased presence of mind and skillful action. How? By consistently strengthening our ability to compassionately return to practices that increase our mindfulness and awakened presence.
