Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: Thinking is the "greatest addiction." Do you agree? Watch on...

 

Meditation


by Chapel Hill Zen Center

Zen is the school of Buddhism which emphasizes the religious practice of meditation. The Buddha taught that Ignorance, created by our greed, hate, and delusion, prevents us from realizing that we are all enlightened. Zen Buddhism teaches that the practice of sitting in meditation (Jap.: zazen) directly manifests our inborn enlightenment, our Buddha Nature. In Zen practice, seated meditation and enlightenment are one. No preliminary training or long preparation is necessary to realize the Way...

Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: This video is a must see for educators...

Do you believe happiness and well-being should be considered skills? Research shows that they are fundamentally no different than learning how to play an instrument. Research has also shown that meditation, in any form, helps cultivate these skills as well as the ability to concentrate and self-regulate. This video of kindergartners at Oxford Elementary School in Berkeley, San Francisco gives an in depth look at the way mindfulness is being incorporated into the classroom (as well as yoga). 41 minutes but well worth the time.

Meditation


by Stephan Beyer, Phd, JD

The wilderness is a teacher, and it teaches, often implacably, the natural consequences of our actions. It’s simple: if I haven’t set up a shelter and it rains, then I get wet. But the lessons of the wilderness go much deeper than that. Kierkegaard once wrote that his foundational idea was that “that those of our time, because of so much knowledge, have forgotten what it is to exist, and the meaning of inwardness...”


Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: The points highlighted in Stephen's article all deliciously intermingle with the process of practicing meditation/mindfulness. Lovely read from my friend.

 

Meditation


by Amanda Christian

For a long time, I felt like I was standing on a riverbank just watching the water of life go by, too scared to jump in and play. I was waiting for the perfect current to come along that I could ride all the way to the completion of my intensely detailed life goals...

 

Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: I say this in meditation class all the time (yes, this one sounds like a blah, blah, blah 'cause I say it a lot!), it is ok to have goals or ideas of what you want to accomplish but then you have to open up to more and to parts that are unknown. This is soooo hard. So many of us want the answers before we even start or to know where we are going to land. We don't know that... and, why would we want to know that... really?! Too constraining, too safe. Let go! Darling, let go! Here's is how letting go relates to life!

 

Meditation


by Jamila Gorman

Controlling the subconscious mind through visualization exercises can be a form of self-hypnosis or a stage of spiritual awareness in which visualization is a powerful tool. Many individuals believe both result in the same state of mind for the individual, making them ultimately the same process...

 

Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: Many people meditate by using visualizations or through guided meditations that also focus on visual scenarios. This article discusses the benefits of visualization practices as our minds and bodies can react just as profoundly to "reality" or to the reality that we create in our heads.

 

Meditation


by Julie Defina

Inspiration is the soul radiating its energetic light on all that we see. When the heart is blocked and the mind confused, our life view becomes distorted through tunnel vision, with only faint light ahead...

 

Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: Meditation teaches us to live from the heart in turn allowing us to move more smoothly and gracefully through the despair that Julie speaks of. Read her nurturing words.

Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: Frequent meditation rewires your brain and sharpens the mind. It also counter acts the aging process and, as this Scientific American video showcases, can keep your mind as you age as fit as a 20 something. Scientists are more deeply starting to understand all that this simple technique can do. Do it yourself (!) and make your own discoveries.

Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Gratitude is such an important life skill to teach children. It has been proven to increase resilience, well being and optimism. That's one of the reasons it is also a primary focus in mindfulness and meditation practices or exercises. The Aussies have it right in this video, sharing three lessons on how we can help our kids have an "Attitude of Gratitude." I've done some iteration of these with my two kids, before seeing this video, but loved their twist on the third idea. Check it out (less than two minutes long).
