Exercise Week 48:
Six Sense Doors 5:
In MIDL Mindfulness Training 48/52 you develop your sensitivity to movements of attention towards the experience of the sense door of touch. Learning to observe awareness of touching creates a grounding for mindfulness within daily life and also the ability to observe attraction or aversion as they arise towards what is felt.
This sensitivity allows you to soften into your relationship towards what is felt, deconditioning any habitual pattern of attraction or aversion through mindful non-participation.
Exercise Week 49:
Six Sense Doors 6:
In MIDL Mindfulness Training 49/52 you develop your sensitivity to movements of attention towards the experience of the sense door of knowing. Learning to observe awareness of knowing creates a grounding for mindfulness within daily life and also the ability to observe attraction or aversion as they arise towards what is known.
This sensitivity allows you to soften your relationship towards what is known, deconditioning any habitual pattern of attraction or aversion through mindful non-participation.
Exercise Week 50:
Calming Activity 60min
In MIDL Mindfulness Training 50/52 you practice the higher skill of abandoning all participation through developing sensitivity to mental activity and softening the desire 'to do', for a longer period of time. Abandoning the desire to do has an impact of the habitual proliferation of the mind until all participation is abandoned and putirty of awareness, free from proliferation is experienced.
This abandoning of awareness from its object gives rise to equanimity and the conditions for the unconditioned to arise. Longer periods of abandoning also has an impact of the clinging within the mind within activities of daily life.
Exercise Week 51/52:
Unguided 30 & 60min
In MIDL Mindfulness Trainings 51 - 52/52 you refine all the different skills that you have learnt during the previous trainings based on softness, flexibility of attention and stillness.
You do this within the formal structure of mindfulness of breathing, applying the different skills that you have learnt, dependent on what arises within your meditation practice. These self guided meditations provide initial guidance in grounding awareness within the body, then a 20min or 50min period of silence for self practice, followed by a grounding of awareness within the body to end the formal practice.
As your skill in in softness, flexibility of attention and stillness deepen there will be a natural appearance of them within your daily life. Your task then is to make the transition from formal seated meditation to meditation in daily life. This is done by re-establishing awareness within the sensate quality of your body every time you remember to do so.
This is your grounding point, similar to your meditation object in formal seated meditation. From this grounding point you will then be able to observe movements of your attention towards or away from your six senses and soften into your relationship towards them abandoning habitual attraction or aversion and deconditioning deep seated patterns.
