Mindfulness Training: An Inside Job!
Safer Mindfulness instruction and training helps us get to know our own mind: the narrator in our head, the relentless parade of thoughts, our reactivity, the habitual ways we do things, our moods, preoccupations, and our tendency to shy away from difficulties, as well as our insights, moments of clarity and non-busyness...the bubbling stew that is the richness of our life.
Through this practice--which can be done anywhere, anytime--we develop a way of being that is rooted in sanity and simplicity.
Key to Mindfulness Training is the meditation instruction and guidance that sets us on the path of practice, helps us through our initial obstacles, and encourages us to keep going. But the most important part of the training is our own exertion as we become familiar with the practice of meditation, and discover the heart of mindfulness.
