Our lives have great value, and our mind has great potential. In making friends with our mind we will have a glimpse of how, with awareness and attention, there is a way to navigate one’s experience inwardly, to guide oneself from a mind experiencing dissatisfaction and stress toward a mind of comfort and ease. The four foundations of mindfulness are:
- mindfulness of the body
- mindfulness of the mind
- mindfulness of the feelings
- mindfulness of the phenomena (dharmas)
This is a path of self-compassion, rather than self-indulgence. Through recognizing the value of our being and understanding our potential, we gain the courage to use these methods to free ourselves from within.

Our programs are given freely, and we rely also on your generosity – this is the traditional and pure way of the Buddha Dharma. Offering support for the Dharma can be a limitlessly powerful act. This is the highest, most long-term form of generosity, which is to share with others the path to full awakening. When we support the Dharma we create causes for us to encounter the Dharma frequently, and we create the merit to be able to easily integrate the teachings in our minds. Offering support deepens our connection to Dharma teachers and connects us as a community.
