Friday Ricard talk


Mathieu Ricard talks about the importance of being present, or mindful in each activity of your day. Watch and then answer the following questions:

Write down five statements that you found helpful or interesting that Ricard says in regard to meditation.

Ricard says that meditation is bare consciousness – aware of emotions but not overtaken with emotion. Where in your life do you see that this would be a helpful way to react?

Ricard says that meditation is about raising the platform where you stand in life. Where would that be for you?

Over the weekend, keep a meditation log in which you record how long you meditated, how did you focus/refocus, and how it affected your mood/interaction with daily life.
