Mindfulness – “quietness and clarity” (ferran mestanza)

–The problem is that it is not deepened. People who are interested in Buddhism are usually left with certain ritual practices, but Buddhism is something more complete. In the Lleida conferences, I try to go beyond the clichés. I explain, for example, how Buddhism helps us to be less selfish in this individualistic world.
— Westerners arrived, attracted by a religion without gods and founded by a normal man, who did not hear any revelation. It seemed to them to tie in with a practical, atheistic society and they called it a religion.

“presència oberta” (ferran mestanza)

“Science is not perfect, it is often misused, it is just a tool, but it is the best tool we have, it corrects itself, it is always evolving and can be applied to everything. With this tool we conquer the impossible”. Carl Sagan
In fact, there are many places that I have visited leaving a little piece of me and taking something of them with me; in a way they are also “home” even if I have not stayed too long in them. I feel like a citizen of the world. Of a world full of wonders and horrors that we need to take care of and preserve. Epimeleia also includes for me the need to take care of the world and the people with whom we share the world.

59 – “meditation of love” (19/01/21, morning – ferran mestanza)

With so many people offering online activities, there is no shortage of resources, including virtual retreats. Alternatively, you can do a DIY retreat: choose a retreat from catalogs like Dharmaseed (in English) or AudioDharma (English and Spanish) and follow their recordings for a few days.
But something has been on my mind since the confinement was looming. People around me were anxious at the thought of spending the next few weeks at home, fearing they would go nuts. I realized how challenging all this would be in terms of mental health. I, even having spent months in retirement, did not jump with glee at the thought of being locked in my mini-apartment. I did, however, imagine that I would have a certain advantage.
So I asked myself: what have I learned from my retreats that might help people cope with their forced seclusion? And I decided to also ask for input from two good dharmic friends. Here are 7 humble lessons from meditation retreats that we can apply to confinement.
