These days the term mindfulness is becoming part of our popular culture. The word is generally used to describe the quality of non-judgemental self-awareness. In this series Gen Daö will explore how the Buddhist meditation tradition reveals an enhanced understanding of, and training in mindfulness. This training – which is suitable for everyone – has been practised for centuries and has proven its effectiveness in helping anyone develop and maintain a deep and genuine peace of mind, happiness & inner well being.
This special training involves combining non-judgemental self awareness with positive personal development. What we could call ‘Mindfulness 2.0’. We learn how to identify, reduce and let go of unpeaceful, negative habits of mind. In their place we learn to connect to and cultivate our potential for peaceful, positive habits of mind through training in meditation & mindfulness.
In this series we will explore the three principal negative habits of mind (delusions) – attachment, anger & confusion / ignorance – which are the root source of all our unhappiness and inner problems. We will learn how we can gradually reduce their power and let them go. We will also learn how to cultivate positive, peaceful habits of mind – patience, non-attachment and wisdom.We will discover how developing and maintaining these three peaceful and positive minds is both an antidote to delusions, and a source of deep peace of mind, inner resilience and happiness. Through this training in improving our mindfulness, we will discover how we can all gradually increase our inner peace, happiness and well being day-by-day.
