Mindfulness Matters

Teachers and Talks Thursday :: Noah Levine

One of the freshest voices in the community of Buddha, Noah Levine, provides a brief meditation tutorial. He eschews Buddhism in favor of Buddha and recommends a revolutionary path. He suggests that we:

•• Defy the lies

•• Serve the truth

•• Beware of teachers

•• Question everything

He has authored two books, his memoir Dharma Punx, Against the Stream: A Buddhist Manual for Revolutionaries, and the forthcoming this spring, The Heart of the Revolution: The Buddha’s Radical Teachings of Forgiveness, Compassion, and Kindness. You can also check out the documentary film, Meditate and Destroy (note his tee shirt).

    This blog has encouraged me to meditate as much as possible, especially at times when I am not being mindful.

    That’s great to hear, Rachel, and the challenge we all face — to be mindful when we are not being mindful. Meditation practice will certainly help with that, even just a few minutes here and there, even just one cycle of the breath! The first step is to remember that we are forgetting and then we start to remember ourselves. And if we think about the word remember, we can think of it as putting our selves back to together again — reconnecting our limbs to our bodies and feeling a wholeness and connection. Thanks for reading the blog and keep meditating!

    I liked how the focus on breathing and stillness will call to mind our spirituality. As we breathe in and out we will be able to bring forth our attention to mindfullness instead of distraction. Thank you very much!!
