Going to Extremes: Not Too Tight, Not Too Loose
In everyday life we are frequently put on the spot and required to speak, listen and think on our feet. However, we often feel we have gone too far or not far enough in our response to everyday life situations. Meditation is about learning to be fully present and reading the world accurately - with our self, loved ones, colleagues and acquaintances. When we are fully on the spot, we navigate the extremes - not too tight, not too loose.
Bob Pressnall is a longtime student of Chogyam Trungpa, Sakyong Mipham and Pema Chodron. He is currently the Head of Education in the Northern California Shambhala region. Bob is familiar with floundering in the deep end, bumping heads in the shallow end, and floating in equanimity.
