Mindfulness in the Time of Pandemic
On Friday May 1st, I started a 10-day virtual Mindfulness retreat. Sounds curious, doesn't it. It is probably one of the first web-based retreats ever, maybe a trend setter?
Since I am at home and I have not totally delegated all my responsibilities, this retreat is inevitably some kind of hybrid version, not anything like being in a monastery. I have to create a sacred time and place for myself to get the benefit.
I want to report how this is going for me, and share with you some of the very basics of the Buddha's teachings and Mindfulness.
"Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom." —Viktor Frankl
