Module 8: Perpetual Mindfulness

Practicing Beyond Grief

Neither a space station nor an enlightened mind can be realized in a day.

The Dalai Lama & Jeffrey Hopkins
How to Practice: The Way to a Meaningful Life

" While your grief will not go away in just eight weeks, by now you will probably realize that your mindfulness practice helps you to meet each day with a greater sense of composure and calm, known as equanimity. If you continue to practice mindfulness through your grief journey and beyond, your body, mind, and spirit will bask in the joy and cope with the sorrow without ever losing sight of the Middle Path. This will empower you to live fully and without fear."
