    Peace.

    Today my take away concerns love’s embodiment. And again, the mystery of being alive is re-enforced with coloring that awareness with love and compassion for ourselves and then everyone and everything. Thank you

    One of the best sessions. I loved in particular the going out, the extending of awareness he emphasizes to the world and people around us. I have a pretty darn happy life but I took up meditation because I became aware that my responses to my wife were pretty automatic and not nice in some respects. It was a very practical motivation, a desire to change habits of a lifetime in a way; and changing old habits with new habits takes a lot of time and continual practice. That mindfulness, anchored in mediation, has really expanded to just start to touch areas Jack mentions. This summit has given me even more motivation to not let the wonder of this life pass me by.

    This is the talk I needed to hear today!
    The compassion with my own faults and woundedness is essential, so that I can develop and perfect my love (not my self). Then I can be more compassionate with others.
    My calm and inner peace can then affect those around me.
    Making better decisions in my own life, I can then also focus on and more effectively engage in the social struggles which are dearest to my heart.
    YES!

    Thank you so much for this interview. I found it very interesting and really loved the concept of mind/spirit/body not separate entities as our culture can have us divide. Refreshing to hear Jack’s expertise – thanks again.

    Love and light

    Jack has a wonderful way of saying things that speak to questions not quite asked. He talks about the practice of mindfulness as a way to perfect the love we already feel, not perfect ourselves. And inspires us to become as expansive in our inward attention to ourselves as we are to expanding our awareness of the world around us. He encourages us to practice mindfulness because we can, because it is a way of expanding our appreciation and love of being human and participate in balancing the bad news of being human.

    Thank you for such a nice & inspiring summit. Mindfulness has changed my life!! I have a request for you:
    Can you please filter all the audio meditations because there is a huge amount of noise in the background and it is not very convenient to meditate. I am sure a lot of people might have felt that. I would really be grateful to you if could do this simple thing!!
