“The radical discovery is that the freedom, clarity, and natural love we seek are always right here.” ~ Loch Kelly
In Rainbow Painting, Tibetan Buddhist teacher Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche writes: “There are two types of mindfulness: deliberate and effortless.” Though deliberate mindfulness and effortless mindfulness are two paths up the same mountain, effortless mindfulness awakens the natural creativity of our essential nature. Deliberate mindfulness is the basic form of mindfulness we are most familiar with. In this practice, we deliberately focus on what we are aware of from the conceptual mind.
Effortless mindfulness is an off-the-meditation-cushion way of weaving together contemplation and compassionate action. Effortless mindfulness begins by opening to a natural spacious awareness in order to become more wise, embodied, and creative.
In this interactive workshop, you will learn:
- The differences between deliberate mindfulness and effortless mindfulness
- The five foundations of effortless mindfulness
- The science of effortless mindfulness
- Practices, or mindful glimpses, to awaken your inner creativity
Join Will Boesl in this interactive workshop to learn how to uncover to this hidden foundation of who we are through the ancient practice of effortless mindfulness.
