What is Mind Training?
Mind training is any method that implants a set of ideas, perspectives, and experiences that work to dismantle habituated patterns of behavior, emotionality, and perception. The mind training presented here plants the seed of compassion and nurtures its growth into the tree of awakening mind (bodhicitta) until it blossoms into presence and the effortless activity that helps others to wake up and be present in their lives, too.
How does mind training work?
Mind training works like two sticks rubbed together to make fire. One stick consists of the perspectives and discipline of mind training; the other is composed of the projections and dynamics of habituated patterns in you. Practice generates friction that causes both sticks to burn up.
