Working Meditation

To participate in working meditation can be a great happiness. It is an opportunity to engage in the maintenance and care of our practice center while enjoying our practice of mindfulness. When we chop wood, we stay mindful of our breathing and the activity that we are doing.

When we work in the garden, we get in touch with the plants and nourish our connection to the earth. When weeding the garden, we are already practicing to calm our mind and body. Please do not be in too great of a hurry to get the job done. Our most important contribution to the sangha is to maintain our practice of mindfulness.

Working Meditation links us to our everyday life, both here and when we return home. As we are working at our computer, preparing dinner for our family, or teaching a class, we can practice stopping, calming, and refreshing ourselves with our conscious breathing. We can relax and smile at our co-workers and pace ourselves to maintain a light and serene state of being.
