Dharma Talk: Peace is in Every Breath
with Willa Thaniya Reid
and Jitindriya Loraine Keats
9:00 PM (Tuesday evening)
at Seattle Insight Meditation Center, (2729 6th Ave. S., Seattle, 98134) (Map It)
Enhancing awareness of the breath and body is a primary way to establish mindfulness in the present moment. It helps us come out of the stress of mental proliferation and we develop the capacity to meet our presently arising experience. As we do this, we begin to recognize how we can either struggle with ‘the way it is’ or be in wise relationship with ‘the way it is’. Seeing and understanding this process directly leads to ‘insight into the Noble Truths’, and brings deep peace in its wake. This is more than just the peace of relaxation or tranquility, which is also a benefit of breath meditation – it is the peace of insight into ‘Dhamma’, reality. This is the possibility with every breath.
