Path of Mindful Activity:
Integrate study and meditation into everyday life and cultivate greater kindness for oneself and others.
We can make every moment meaningful by bringing the conceptual clarity of study and the experiential base of meditation into our daily lives, both through service and in everyday activities.
The path of mindful activity bridges study and meditation with every aspect of our lives in concrete and practical ways. It provides a variety of methods for being present–with relaxation, curiosity, and compassion–during life’s experiences, whether they are moments of service, routine activity, difficult situations, or major life transitions.
Nalandabodhi Centers seek to provide a supportive environment for members to participate in dharma service. By applying mindful (and kindful) activity methods to the ways we collaborate on the activities of our Centers, service becomes an important opportunity to watch our minds as we walk our personal path. Mindful activity practices also provide support as we act to serve the broader community. Nalandabodhi #GoKind projects include volunteering at shelters, connecting with people who are incarcerated, working with homeless and disadvantaged youth, providing food to those in need, environmental work, and visiting and supporting the elderly.
