Sit back and enjoy this amazing talk from Sister True Brightness about handling strong emotions from our day with the School of Ethics and Global Leadership in Washington DC, during the Wake Up US Tour. The young people were enthralled, and so were we!
It has been a long time since I had a chance to post an article on this website, yet today, on the penultimate day of the International Youth Retreat in Plum Village, is the first time I have consciously made the decision to sit down and give it my full attention. I will make the most of this opportunity to speak from the heart and hopefully my words will resonate with the thoughts and feelings of others.
At some point in our lives mindfulness will come into contact with our relationships, whether family, friendships or sexual. Personally, I have struggled with the impact that the practice has had on my social life and it is my sole intention to bring people together on this common ground. There are some of us who have, to a certain degree, integrated the art of mindful living within our daily lives. Of course, there are those for whom, mindful living is merely a concept at the moment and harmonizing mindfulness with one’s day-to-day life requires a step into the unknown.
