Dos and Don'ts When Teaching Mindfulness

Dos and Don'ts When Teaching Mindfulness

Commented Feb 12, 2013 at 04:55:58 in Healthy Living

“I'd like to concur with a reader who wrote to me stating, "I would like to dialogue about one comment. In public schools, even if one learned the practices in a Buddhist setting, I feel it is essential that that the practices are offered in a secular way. I am interested in your thoughts and feelings about this.: I absolutely, ABSOLUTELY agree. Thank you for making this point so clearly and strongly, it's of the utmost importance!”

“Thanks all for the comments... speaking openly on these issues helps de-stigmatize the topic and, more immediately, reminds us that we're not as isolated in dealing with them as it sometimes seems.”

The Terms of Heartbreak

“Please remember that just as biology isn't destiny, neither is past experience fated to predict the future.”

Pearlswan on Apr 23, 2011 at 17:15:02

“Yes, there is the capacity for resilience, which is very strong in us humans. However, has anyone in the mental health professions informed the insurance companies of this? They seem certain that child abuse & spousal abuse are pre-existing conditions and are being used as grounds to deny medical treatment, especially mental health services. They don't use evidence of any prior diagnoses either. Just having had the experience is enough to deny access to healthcare plans and/or treatment related to physical injury. Perhaps medical professionals might tell them it isn't destiny and stop them from this unjust & abusive practice rather than allowing them to institutionalize it?”

The Terms of Heartbreak

Commented Apr 22, 2011 at 09:38:52 in Healthy Living

“The lasting impact of abuse is undeniable, both the trauma and then the silence, and/or disbelief that follows. Too many kids report reality only to be told they're "crazy" or "lying" or any number of other demeaning and profoundly disrespectful comments. None of us can change "what happened" but the renewed hurt of having others "disbelieve" is insidious, in part because it happens repeatedly in the present. If this is your story, Majesty, or that of others you care for, please, please find people in your community who have walked this path before and can help - do so now - as an adult. It's never too late.”

The Terms of Heartbreak

“You make a powerful point. Training in "helping" rarely if ever includes strategies for living with the work. And, all too often, we put all our focus into the work and neglect our own inner balance - and this leads to less than ideal outcomes for everyone. Mindfulness practice helps me maintain my center so I can notice what's happening in-and around me, weep when I have to, and rejoice too, and then move on. Thank you for your insights and kind words.”

The Terms of Heartbreak

Commented Apr 22, 2011 at 09:29:59 in Healthy Living

“I think many of us who work with horror find paradox in the process and love. LABELS ARE NEVER HELPFUL when applied as yokes. And people can commit horrible actions, but that does not make them "horrible people." The balance, I believe, is in holding them accountable for their actions and destructive intentions, and supporting those they've hurt in their healing and growth, and maintaining our humanity throughout.”
