Sitting group Meditation

Mindfulness meditation means being fully aware of the situation we are presently living, whether pleasant or unpleasant, not wanting to run away from it

The definition of meditation is the ability to be as you are without further contrivances to make yourself comfortable. The definition of meditation is just a sense of being, a sense of isness that is happening.
— Chögyam Trungpa

It is not a matter of controlling the mind or improving ourselves, but of resting in the spaciousness of our open and fully present receptive mind. It means remaining deeply aware, radically responsible, and trusting what shapes us as human beings
