(Group Learning Program) - Breathing Mindfulness Meditation & Student Discussion
Breathing Mindfulness Meditation eliminates craving/desire/attachment by training the mind to “cut off thoughts” or "let them go" during meditation, thus, removing the poison of “Greed” or “Craving” while developing mindfulness.
The goal of Breathing Mindfulness Meditation is to develop “Right Concentration”, “Right Mindfulness”, and to eliminate the unwholesome root of craving/desire/attachment by training the mind not to cling or attach to emotions, situations, fears, relationships, the past nor the future expectations you have of yourself. Gotama Buddha explained this as “cutting off thoughts”. You may also think of this as “letting go of the thoughts”.
All discontentedness is from craving/desire/attachment so it is important to train the mind to not have craving/desire/attachment as part of "Developing Your Life Practice".
In this Podcast, David will guide you in understanding Breathing Mindfulness Meditation, how to do Breathing Mindfulness Meditation, he will guide you in doing Breathing Mindfulness Meditation during a group meditation session, and will accept questions from students to help you develop your "life practice".
