Reading Group: Mindfulness in Plain English
“The foundation of the Original Love program is always going to be mindfulness – coming back to here and now, learning to be ok here and now, steady, grounded, centered. In the midst of whatever is going on we can find a home, find a refuge. That’s what mindfulness is really for. I think this book will be a perennial treasure for many of us.”
– Henry Shukman
Henry got together with Mountain Cloud’s Guiding Teacher, Valerie Forstman, to talk about this reading group – – see video on this page.
Valerie led this 2-hour reading group, which included a talk, small group discussion, and prompts for self-reflection on the book’s themes and practices.
“This book is so accessible. For those who may be new to meditation, or if you have years of experience – the book is very welcoming, a great outline of mindfulness practices. This book addresses some of the challenges we run into when we take up this basic practice of mindfulness.”
– Valerie Forstman
