2018-10-26 Effortless Mindfulness Embodied with Loch Kelly - TBIF 1:44:04
  Loch Kelly
With wisdom, clarity and care, Loch Kelly offers teachings and practices that directly evolve consciousness and liberate the heart.” 
―Tara Brach, Ph.D. Author of Radical Acceptance In the Indo-Tibetan Buddhist tradition, meditation is taught in two stages. The first is deliberate mindfulness, which includes one-pointed focus and insight meditation. The second practice is called effortless mindfulness, not because no initial effort is made, but because of the discovery of an awareness that is already awake and has natural compassion. Effortless mindfulness is an advanced, yet simple form of mindfulness. Rather than concentrating to calm and focus your mind, we will learn to intentionally shift into our awake aware mind, which is already calm, intelligent, and able to effortlessly focus. This is an important practice to learn for your journey of awakening. Loch’s Award-Winning Book, Shift Into Freedom, and Audio, Effortless Mindfulness Now, can be found HERE.

  Ajahn Sucitto
When we reflect on the nature of fields, we notice everything is a duality. How we relate in this twosome is the practice. Unskillful latent tendencies are revealed in relationship, giving us an opportunity to clear them. Kalyāṇamitta (spiritual friendship) is essential. It’s only others that can show us what we don’t see in ourselves.
