    Awareness is the flower of Buddhist practice, an organic outgrowth of mindfulness. As we become familiar with sitting meditation, we sense how to cultivate relaxation, as a falling away of habitual patterns and tendencies. We learn how to be without conditions. Uncovering natural clarity becomes the focus of our spirtual path and leads to deeper appreciation of being human. This seven-week series of Sunday morning talks and practice, guides students in understanding and exploring awareness as it has been taught within the Tibetan Buddhist and Shambhala traditions.
