Beyond Mindfulness The Direct Approach to Lasting Peace, Happiness, and Love
For those who seek genuine realization, the practice of mindfulness may pose significant limitations. This course presents the progressive approach of mindfulness meditation and offers powerful pointers and intimate, time-honored guidance for experiencing and resting right now in your natural state of awakened awareness, the ultimate source of lasting happiness and peace.
Mindfulness was always meant to be a stepping-stone, not an end in itself, a skillful method for going beyond mindfulness to recognize the foundation out of which mindfulness arises. According to this tradition, the act of being mindful is a portal to a deeper, enduring awareness that can’t be manufactured or practiced. This deeper awareness is always functioning, whether we know it or not. Indeed, it is our natural state of spontaneous presence, without which there would be no experience at all. Instead of cultivating it like a talent or strengthening it like a muscle, we just need to recognize and return to it.
