PHUKET: Among the most advanced and well-versed of Western Buddhist meditation gurus in the country and the region, if not the world, Andrea Capellari is Thanyapura's esteemed Mind Trainer.
ozziegontang's insight:

The mind reflects the body reflects the mind.  I run or walk as part of my meditative practice.  The rhythm of my steps, the breathing rhythms and patterns, allow me to be present and in the moment. I get to see where my body is. I find it easy to quiet my thinking after a run.

As business classes get underway at the Drucker School of Management at Claremont Graduate University, MBA students open their laptops and professors fire up PowerPoint presentations in many classrooms.
ozziegontang's insight:

When it comes to leadership, it is most important to first be able to lead myself. That begins with listening to what is going on within me.  I focus my attention being present and aware. I look at my feelings and thoughts.

Rachel shared this over at Marathoners.  Nicely done by Shay Carl.

I especially liked sound at the ending at the top of the overlook. 


A way of "Counting Coup."  Or a different take on the allegory of Sysiphus, where the rock stays at the top and Sysiphus rolls back down to get another rock. Peter: ...and upon this rock I will build....my practice.


When running becomes part of one's practice.  Doing the same thing on a regular basis allows me to see how the one common thread throughout this practice is doing and being and experiencing. Me doing the practice being that thread. The path is the same. The environment changes daily or even hourly.

Meditation myth busters
1. Meditation is not something religious or associated with a particular faith. In fact, it can be practised by anyone, at any age, irrespective of their culture, gender or religious beliefs. It can even be practiced by people with no faith in any “higher power”.

2. It does not necessarily involve uncomfortable, jalebi-like postures only meant for those with flexible bodies. You don’t have to sit in the lotus position with your legs crossed if it does not suit you. As a matter of fact, you should actually find a position that is comfortable for you.

3. Not all meditation techniques require you to sit or be still. You can also meditate while walking, running, swimming, dancing and believe it or not, even while sweeping or washing dishes.

ozziegontang's insight:

Running has been a part of my mindful meditation for the past 35 years.   My breathing has been my guide.
