How to stop suffering: Step #6

The meditation begins at 7:12
Audio only version is here.

Hello, excellent Open Heart Project meditator. I am so happy we can practice together.

In the last few weeks, we have been examining the steps outlined by the Buddha that lead away from suffering, aka the Noble Eightfold Path. Today, we look at the 6th step, “Right Effort.”

Before we sit, I offer you some thoughts on what is meant by effort (which might be better called “non-effort”) and suggest a way for you to continually make this right effort. It was taught by Tibetan meditation master Chogyam Trungpa as the “Touch and Go” technique. It is is quite effective and, luckily for you and me, we practice this technique every time we meditate, so we already know how to do it.

By the way, how is your practice going? I’m always interested to hear about your experience, what is working, not working, and what questions you may have. Please share in comments below.

Enjoy!

With love, Susan
