On the evening of Thanksgiving, Toby Sola, a CEDAR resident, leads us in a meditation. We begin by focusing on and clarifying the experience of breathing, which develops concentration. We then add to the exercise by taking a moment to smile and be our own best friend if/when we get distracted, which develops equanimity. During the second half of the meditation, we use mental talk, mental image, and emotional body sensation to explore what we are thankful for.

Most guidances consist of two 30-minute periods of practice in stillness with a five-minute period of movement in the middle.

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.
