I recently looked up "well-being" in the dictionary. It's defined as a "happy, healthy and prosperous state".

Performing Better

I've thoroughly enjoyed teaching this meditation and mindfulness (M&M) course over almost three years. My reward is seeing participants discover and develop better ways of living. I refer to the students as participants because they learn mostly by their own observation and experimentation.

The practice of mindfulness is about being present for your life and experiencing it just as it is, without the judgments that can lead you to a conditioned reaction. I remember this every morning when I take my shower.

Dukkha is the Pali word for unsatisfactoriness or suffering, Pali being the language used in India at the time of the Buddha.

My First Retreat

One year after attending the course on meditation and mindfulness (MBSR), I went on my first meditation retreat. It was an experience which, initially, was not particularly pleasant.

One of the attitudes we cultivate to enhance our being mindful is that of not "striving" – whenever possible and appropriate, not working to achieve a particular outcome from an experience. I relearned this attitude when I attended my son's graduation.

The Cat's Meow

In order to deal with difficulties during meditation - and daily living – certain perspectives and attitudes can be quite helpful. I was reminded of this again a number of years ago when I encountered the cat's meow.
