Our core practice is mindfulness-awareness meditation. This meditation practice enables us to look precisely at our state of mind, moment by moment. By not manipulating or altering our experience, we truly make friends with ourselves as we are, unconditionally. From that, we develop natural openness and genuine compassion towards ourselves and our world.

"By simply being on the spot, your life can become workable and even wonderful. You realize that you are capable of sitting like a king or queen on a throne. The regalness of that situation shows you the dignity that comes from being still and simple."
-- Chögyam Trungpa
