Example text

We use audio recordings to guide people in various meditations. It’s a well-defined, participatory curriculum that involves a lot of carefully guided meditation practice. The guidance is meant to give participants an understanding from the inside of what is being asked of them in terms of moment-to-moment, non-judgmental awareness and its embodiment both in formal practice and in daily living. On another note, I’ve often wondered if you ever learned to ride a bicycle? HH Dalai Lama: Yes. Jon Kabat-Zinn: I ask because sometimes when we teach little children to ride a bicycle, it’s not so easy for them to learn.

And we say, “Yes, but has that worked in the past? Just as an experiment, can you perhaps put a single toe in the water? ” Often, one discovers that there is also a whole universe of thinking around the sensations: “I hate this. This is killing me. How long is it going to last? ” All of those statements are merely thoughts, but people relate to them as if they are the truth about themselves and their immediate condition. Then there is the whole emotional component to pain: anger, frustration, irritability, not liking one’s body, feeling betrayed.

This is something that we as individuals can discover for ourselves. This is the good news of the Third Noble Truth: adventitious suffering can end. Even when we have a painful experience, whether physical or emotional, a headache or some great loss, the heart and mind can still be completely at peace with it. It can be seen as absolutely okay, with no struggle against it, no resistance or resentment. There is no suffering or dissatisfaction created around it. This is a key element of Buddhist spiritual and psychological training.
