Locating my Inner Buddha by Joyful Courage
I met Casey at MamaCon 2013, and had the pleasure of working with her again this year. Casey is a force of nature with a smile so big, it fills the room. Her charisma and down to earth nature make you feel the joy of parenting and give you back the zest you need to infuse your kids with your own bright spirit. I hope you enjoy her as much as I do! ~ Rebecca
I am fresh from a training in the Buddhist psychology of loving awareness and amazed by how much of what was covered fits in with the journey of parenting…
Right off the bat, the speaker, Jack Kornfield (LOVE HIM) shared that Buddhist teachings are really a science of the mind, and understanding of our own mind and heart, our inner well being.
Going into this training, I had the mainstream understanding of Buddhism – you know, reincarnation, mindfulness, meditation. I didn’t really understand how well matched many of my beliefs about the world, especially the internal human experience, were with Buddhist psychology. It was not only transformative, but also, a really validating experience to learn more and to listen to language that so eloquently captured how I see the world.
No matter what your religious or spiritual beliefs are, most often there is a core idea that the soul in its purest form is love energy, the God inside of us. Buddhist’s refer to this as our “Buddha nature”. This spirit that we all have is our raw being – our place of unconditional love and compassion.
