THE NEW ISSUE:
The Fourteen Mindfulness Trainings, Part 1
SUMMER 2019 ISSUE 81, AVAILABLE EARLY JUNE
Guest edited by Dharma teacher Mitchell Ratner, this issue shares the fruits of our practice with three of the Fourteen Mindfulness Trainings.
True Transmission: In a Dharma talk, Thich Nhat Hanh teaches us about the teacher-disciple relationship, mindfulness practice as a path of freedom from afflictions, and what it means to be an Order of Interbeing member and a Sangha builder. (Full Dharma talk available here)
Awareness of Suffering: Practitioners recall their service in places of great suffering—the aftermath of a typhoon, a family violence hotline, reliving of childhood trauma, a harrowing bus ride—and how they found balance, healing, and forgiveness in the middle of trouble.
Dwelling Happily in the Present Moment: We learn how people have practiced the art of mindful living during a transformative journey with stage 4 cancer, breadmaking, and joyful drumming and singing.
True Love: Dharma teacher Leslie Rawls invites us to engage in conscious, mindful practices to cultivate healthy intimacy and true love; practitioners reflect on challenges of casual sexual relationships, conscious sexuality as a spiritual practice, and silence as a nurturing ingredient in a marriage.
