In this evening’s talk, Soryu discusses the two sides of the practice: letting go/wisdom and holding on/compassion. We learn that, broadly speaking, what survives in the world is what is given attention (i.e. what is held on to) and we should therefore use meditation as an opportunity to give good things our attention. Yet it is hard to know what is good and what is bad, and this is where letting go and wisdom comes in.

At CML, we are creating an educational system in which mindfulness and traditional study are fully integrated. This will allow students to learn more deeply and more quickly. They will see the world from a larger perspective, create happier lives, succeed more than those without mindfulness skills, and create a better future.
