2019 Mindfulness Practice Programmes

Why is practice important? When not moving toward integration, complex systems like our lives move toward either chaos or rigidity, rather than the flexible harmonious flow of integrative wellbeing. ~ Dr Dan Siegel

Below are links to the online audio and downloads for all recent weekly mindfulness practice meditations 'Free of Charge - Open to All'. Practising Mindfulness may be the kindest action we can take for our own growth and that of humanity because we are all connected. As we change individually we assist in making shifts in the collective. Connecting with our deep wellbeing empowers us to take action for a happier and more caring world. Thank you for being on the journey of bringing more kindness, compassion and resilience into our world!

Mindfulness Meditation Practice - Thursday 7 March 2019

Live Kirtan ~ Alys

Live Kirtan with Alys, a practice that facilitates entering a state of meditation through sound.

Kirtan is really about collective sound. According to Sruti Ram, singing together makes the neurotransmitters responsible for feelings of loneliness stop firing. It is Kirtan’s explanation of why almost all of the world’s religions have a tradition of group singing or chanting.

Kirtan is an invitation to let go, to share your whole heart in a sacred environment. We hope that by offering our hearts completely we can find an inner freedom that increases our ability to express our fullest light into the world.


Mindfulness practice couldn't be simpler: pay attention to the breath, and when your attention wanders, return. By following these simple steps, you can get to know yourself up close and personal. The essential meditation is Silence. We are made of sound and silence.Sound is our mind; silence is our being. Sound is our trouble; silence is our liberation.All other meditations are different forms of witnessing, but witnessing is present in every kind of meditation as an essential part. Vipassana Page

Part 2: The Third Foundation of Mindfulness ~ Christina Feldman

Dharma Seed is an online resource dedicated to making the Buddhist teachings of Insight Meditation and associated practices available to all. Our intention is to be a support for meditation teachers, their communities, students and meditation practitioners and to provide access to the teachings to those who might not otherwise have access to them. www.youtube.com/watch?

Positive Mind ~ Jason Stephenson

We’re often told that stress is a bad thing. Studies have shown the negative effects of stress on the mind and body – such as cardiovascular diseases, weaker immune systems, premature aging, psychological problems, and a whole host of other nasties. Fortunately, there are medicines, exercise programs, diets, and even meditation techniques to help deal with it. In 2012, however, researchers at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health published a study suggesting that there’s far more to stress than we’ve been led to believe. According to them, when approached in the right way, stress can actually be good for us. www.youtube.com/watch?

Mindfulness Meditation Practice - Thursday 28 February 2019

OM

OM is the symbol of the universal heartbeat; it is not a word. And as you come closer and closer to the universal heartbeat, the by-product is a deepening silence. Shantih means silence and it is always repeated three times because by the time you reach to the fourth, you are no more – just the silence has remained. You have disappeared as an entity separate from the universe. www.youtube.com/watch

Om Mani Padme Hum ~ Osho

Music is the only language that comes very close to silence, the only sound which is able to create the soundless. It has to be understood that music has no meaning. It is sheer joy, celebration. It is the only art that can somehow impart the inexpressible. The ancient tradition of music is that it was born out of meditation. The people who meditated could not find any way to impart their experiences. They invented different instruments so that something can be said without creating a meaning in you but certainly a joy, a dance.. www.youtube.com/watch?

Event: However you do it, make a conversation about mental health

My Whole Life is Full of Jokes ~ Osho

Gautam Buddha said as his last statement: ‘Be a light unto yourself’. The day I leave the body please remind me, so that I can make my last statement: ‘Be a joke unto yourself’. That is far more joyful than being a light unto yourself. What are you going to do with a light? Light your cigars, or burn people’s houses?

But being a joke unto yourself, you will be a bliss for everyone…” www.youtube.com/watch?

Happiness: Part Two ~ Osho

Being happy is up to you. It’s a choice you make, and it really is that simple. No one but you is responsible for your happiness, and no one but you can choose to be happy. “Happiness is man's nature. You need not worry about happiness at all, it is already there. It is in your heart – you just have to stop being unhappy, you have to stop the mechanism functioning which creates unhappiness.” Osho Happiness Page with resources from tonight's Mindfulness Practice.

Included are excerpts from books, recorded talks and video links by Osho.

Going to the places that scare you ~ Pema Chodron

We always have a choice, Pema Chödrön teaches: We can let the circumstances of our lives harden us and make us increasingly resentful and afraid, or we can let them soften us and make us kinder. In this talk, Pema provides the tools to deal with the problems and difficulties that life throws our way. This wisdom is always available to us, Pema teaches, but we usually block it with habitual patterns rooted in fear. Beyond that fear lies a state of open heartedness and tenderness. This talk is a guide on how to awaken our basic goodness and connect with others, to accept ourselves and others complete with faults and imperfections, and to stay in the present moment by seeing through the strategies of ego that cause us to resist life as it is. www.youtube.com/watch

Mada Dalian interview on her book

In Search of the Miraculous: Healing into Consciousness is an invaluable spiritual manual to each persons journey out of pain and suffering. It imparts an in-depth understanding about the complexities of our spiritual journey, and covers many questions left unanswered by others. The author guides readers through the phases of the development of their ego and consciousness, and describes the steps we all need to take to heal our ego into consciousness. Most chapters are followed by question and answer sections; making the topics covered in each chapter more personal and down-to-earth. The author s own story at the end of the book, described in the chapter One Spirit s Journey, beautifully exemplifies how she herself has walked the talk that she now teaches to others. This book might be this year s best offering in the field of spirituality and personal growth, and is here to stay for a long time to come. www.transformationradio.fm

As an advocate of mindfulness as a way of life, I invite you to incorporate mindfulness as a part of your New Year Resolutions.

Perhaps you already have a New Year Resolution in mind, and you could be more mindful about achieving or sticking with it.". www.youtube.com/watch?
