“In this groundbreaking guidebook, Loch Kelly offers contemporary versions of ancient practices . . . that can liberate our lives with meaning, connection, and clarity. What a beautiful book!” – Daniel J. Siegel, MD, author of Aware
“Loch Kelly’s guidance is clear, precise, and arises from a wise, caring heart. There are very few who can guide with such mastery. The Way of Effortless Mindfulness is truly a gift.” - Tara Brach, Ph.D., author of True Refuge
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 will be available to sign his new book after the meditation evening.REGISTER HERE
