What We Do
The Mindfulness of Breathing (http://www.pacificbuddha.org/awareness#mindfulness-breathing) meditation gives you the tools to anchor your experience on the kinetic sensation of the breath, allowing for increased focus within a broader context of empathetic awareness. This method of mind training was taught and practiced long before the historical Buddha cultivated it on the night of his Awakening. By learning this simple practice, you become connected with a long and venerable tradition.
The Development of Loving-kindness (http://www.pacificbuddha.org/love#loving-kindness) meditation changes neural pathways toward experiences that normally lead to reactive emotions, through setting aside time to develop loving-kindess toward oneself and others. Loving-kindness is considered the root emotion for all higher states of consciousness in ancient Indian psychology. It is also one of only two universally prescribed meditations in the Buddhist tradition, and is the first meditation practice Patanjali recommends for yogis.
Everything is better when shared—including meditation.
Just like music, meditation can be enjoyed on its own or with others who dance to the same beat. You can feel a real connection with others by tapping into the same silence and source of peace at the same time. 🕉
