Three Steps to Awakening

three steps to awakening a practice for bringing mindfulness to life

Larry calls himself a minimalist, and it is because he gives us only what is relevant, so that we can move easily with his teaching toward the liberation of our own minds and hearts. An important contribution to the literature of vipassana meditation. Investigate this the next time you do some breathing meditation. There is simplicity but also complexity. Not entirely true for all of us — some of us also want to get a stronger feel for how to integrate our practice into our everyday lives. A unique three-phase model for meditation practice that ties together elements of the various Buddhist traditions and that is remarkably adaptable to modern life and changing situations. Keep an eye on everything in your mind.

Or on an extended retreat, one might find choiceless awareness more appropriate.
