For the full-time view of emptiness I’ve gained from magical practice, I admit, mindfulness is not my strength. I leave that to my spiritual blog partner AC. So, to work the edges, I’m taking the plunge into the realm of mindfulness meditation and am taking Buddhist Geeks founder Vince Horn’s ‘Social Noting Facilitator Training’ course next year.
Look, I practice meditation almost every day. But it’s a sitting with nonduality, free form meditation sort of a thing. Actually paying pointed attention to my current experience is not something I do often.
And to go deeper down the rabbit hole, I’ll not only be practicing mindfulness, I’ll be doing this socially with a group of people. AND, I’ll be learning how to facilitate ‘social noting’ sessions.
It is up to magicians to challenge themselves right? Well here we go!
