Zen Bites #6 Daily Life Practice

Zen Buddhism & Psychotherapy

In this discussion Jamie & Martin discuss the mechanics of daily life practice, the practice of meditation in the midst of our life activities. How does this tie into the more 'visible' practice of zazen (sitting meditation)?

In this episode Jamie & Martin explode the myth that meditation is only carried out in a sitting position and discuss how the mainstay of a Buddhist Mindfulness practice is to take it off the cushion and into daily life.

They discuss different approaches to this practice; looking at the elements involved in setting up a practice in daily life; plus the importance of working with the emotional household as the key to transformation of consciousness.
