When Awareness Become Natural:Cultivating a Compassionate Awareness with Alexis Santos

Saturday, September 28 @ 4:00 pm - Sunday, September 29 @ 4:00 pm

 “When awareness becomes natural,” as Sayadaw U Tejaniya explains, our practicebecomes part of our life, rather than a separate activity or pastime.

Wisdom and compassion are natural to the mind and they develop when we learn to attend skillfully to our experience with awareness. They arise when the mind is not obscured by confusion and distractedness, anxiety and fear, and the relentlessness of desires and wants. And yet these afflictive habits of mind are natural as well – meaning they are not a self. They also arise due to causes and conditions that can be understood.

Through relaxing the body and mind, we can come to understand the effortless nature of being mindful. This natural awareness leads to the blossoming of wisdom and compassion.
