Carrying into everyday life the wisdom of retreat or of an intensive period of meditation and study at home can be a challenge. Yet we can shape our experience in ways that preserve insights gained. Just back from an extended stay in Europe, Eveline shared with us parts of a talk given by Nathan Glyde in Finland addressing this very question.
Instead of just finding that we are having a hard time adapting to ordinary life, Nathan uses the framework of the Hindrances to examine our distractions, and focuses on the Paramis as time tested guides to bring us back to the path.
