A student writes:

"The most important thing I’ve gained is that meditation has become part of my life. I had tried before -- I would do it for a month or so but would drop off. With this course I feel for the first time that meditation is a practice I can sustain."

kulananda (michael chaskalson)

Kulananda, known in the world of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction as Michael Chaskalson, explores how we limit ourselves by assuming that our nature is fixed and shows how "everything that we call 'ourselves' is simply a changing pattern of interrelationships — patterns that are inextricably part of a great flux of conditions."
