The Way of Effortless Mindfulness Book Talk
 
with Loch Kelly
 
Friday, June 28th, 2019 | 7:00pm – 9:00pm
 

 
This evening of meditation and book signing is based on Loch Kelly’s new book, The Way of Effortless Mindfulness.

In one Buddhist tradition, meditation is taught in two stages. The first is deliberate mindfulness, which includes one-pointed focus and nonjudgmentally observing the changing contents of our mind and body. The second practice is called effortless mindfulness, not because no initial effort is made, but because of the discovery of an awareness that is already awake and able to focus effortlessly.



“Effortless mindfulness” is an advanced yet simple form of mindfulness available to us in the midst of our busy lives. In The Way of Effortless Mindfulness, Loch teaches that when you “unhook” awareness from chattering thoughts, you can access a peaceful mind and a naturally embodied wakefulness. From this heartful space, students report that wise action comes easily and compassion for all of life is freely available.

Loch Kelly will also offer a daylong program on this topic on Saturday, June 29th, 2019. Click here for more information and registration.
