Cultural Blog Part 4. Daily Mindfulness

<ul> <li class="question">What did you learn from your 'mindfulness conversation'? How did the other person find it?</li> <p class="answer"> At "A Day in the Life" at EDA we practiced "mindful listening", and I found it quite hard just to listen and not to react at all, not to ask any questions while the person was talking. However, it is a good way to be actully focused on listening, to absorb the information given, and to respond. </p> <li class="question">Which of the three suggested techniques will you use to sustain your practice?</li> <p class="answer"> When it comes to practice it is a good idea to have a friend to practice together, as you can motivate each other. </p> <li class="question">Any other musings?</li> <p class="answer"> I've learned there are 2 qualities of attention: focused attention and open attention. I've never thought about flexible (open) side of attention. And also, this chapter reminded me the simplest thing: every practice requires effort. </p> </ul>
