Class 5 - Distractions

You're sure to find this class  (number five) interesting. Within this class were talking about distractions. Distractions are the things that we literally run into every day. But most of us do not realize that they are they are there let alone the fact that there are different types of distractions. We have worldly distractions and unworldly or mental distractions. We will also talk about the type of distractions that we Love. Such as the ones that make us feel comfortable,  such as TV and computer even Facebook.













Class 6 - Concentration

Concentration is the subject of this next class. We will come to understand what concentration is and how to use what is called the 'hindrances' to our concentration as a tool for us to use and understand in determining whether or not we are concentrated. We will discuss how are worries seem to disappear when there is concentration. Even if it is temporary. We will discuss something called sinking and thinking and we will do an additional breath meditation. Don't forget to practice daily.

Class 7 - Mindfulness

This is a primary area of this course-mindfulness-in this course are going to investigate the mind at a deeper level than we have to ever done before. We will investigate for areas of the body and mind namely body awareness, feelings, mind states, and mind objects. Mindfulness is in many respects the key to our happiness in life. Mindfulness provides us an opportunity to examine and investigate what comes up for us as an individual. When this is done properly, we realize that are holding on to the aspect of being an individual that does not accept change is what initially causes any kind of discomfort or stress in her life. The result that we come to is that there must be an acceptance in order for us to be happy. This is a large chapter in this book meditation, the great teacher. This is large chapter for reason, because it is very very important that it is understood at a deep level.











Class 8 - Going Within, With Awarness

In this eighth and final class we are taking an in-depth look at who we believe we are and reaching a realization of who we are not. Here were taking a look at practices be on the meditation cushion and how are continual daily practice can benefit our lives.
