Community Practices

These guided practice sessions are led by mindfulness and mindful eating professionals.  Each session is 45 - 60 minutes long and consists of a short introduction, guided practice, and concluding discussion. Participants are invited to use their webcam and be visible to other participants, but are welcome to simply participate by audio only, or simply listen. These practice sessions are open to everyone. For participants who are not members of TCME, we ask for a donation to cover the costs of running the program.

    La meditación cultiva la atención y nos ayuda a tomar conciencia de los pensamientos, sentimientos y todos los sentidos, sin juicio. Alienta la curiosidad y cultiva la compasión, proporcionando así una base de presencia para la alimentación consciente.

    El centro de Alimentación Consciente se ha comprometido a desarrollar una comunidad que comparta la visión mencionada y crear un tiempo y espacio seguros para profundizar tu práctica de meditación junto con personas que tienen los mismos intereses que tú.

    Durante los próximos meses Cuca Azinovic compartirá con la comunidad diversas meditaciones que nos ayuden a crear este espacio de práctica y cultivo de la atención plena y el amor bondadoso. Cada mes habrá una práctica diferente con el fin de ayudarte a que encuentres tu propia práctica base de meditación con la que trabajar. 

    Estas sesiones de meditación están diseñadas para cualquier persona interesada en aprender a meditar o profundizar en la práctica de meditación existente.

    Monthly Theme: Finding Equanimity in the Midst of it All 

    When we have lost our balance, we often engage in behaviors that become hurtful to ourselves and others. We say things we wish we hadn’t said, we eat and drink more than feels good, and we seek comfort in activities that only provide quick, temporary relief.  We never quite find our footing and we feel out of control. 

    Formal equanimity practice is not common as mindfulness, lovingkindness, and compassion, but it teaches us a precious capacity to stay grounded in the midst of difficulty, sorrow, fear, anger, and grief. This practice acknowledges both the joy and the sorrow that exist in the world and opens us up to both. Mindfulness helps us not to struggle with reality but to land in the middle of it and be with it so that we can take the most skillful next step. One that is grounded in a sense of calm and peace—in equanimity. 

    Restlessness, agitation, and fear are the opposites of equanimity, and equanimity without heart is indifference. Mindful equanimity, however, is grounded in caring. It helps you engage in the present moment with and open heart to the suffering within and around you. As a result, you are more likely to engage in action that is thoughtful and compassionate. 

    Join us in the free April meditation practice and learn to engage with the phrases of equanimity.  Build a sense of trust in your ability to be with and embrace both your pain and your joy during this trying times. 

    We hope to see you soon! Be safe and be well.
