Two Kinds of Awareness
In this short teaching, Mingyur Rinpoche discusses the difference between normal awareness and meditative awareness. As he explains, we can cultivate meditative awareness by using every aspect of our experience as a support for awareness, even painful feelings and challenging emotions. This enables us to remain centered throughout the ups and downs of our lives. Watch the video and then discuss it in the Monthly Teachings Forum under the topic Two Kinds of Awareness.
