Dhammarati - in conversation here with Dhammamegha - is one of the most experienced members of the Triratna College of Public Preceptors having chaired it for over ten years. Here he talks about his long sabbatical after leaving that job - a rich, deep time that encompassed post-Impressionist galleries in New York and lengthy solitary retreats in California and in Wales.
Day 19 is a meditation on the breath, seeing the nature of thoughts. In the meditation we label our thoughts to help us disentangle from them and see their nature more clearly. When we catch ourselves caught up in our thoughts we can label it as thinking. This can help us let go of whatever it is we are caught up in. Have a day mind full of breath.
