Facing Aversion

Aversion involves the desire to turn away from or avoid something unwanted. Most often experienced as annoyance, disliking, disgust, or even hatred, aversion obscures reality by turning attention away from what is present, preventing us from truly understanding our experience. By learning to face aversion, we can gather important information that can help us respond to life situations with greater ease and wisdom.

Caring Without Attachment

Caring simply means kindness and concern for others, but sometimes we get this concept mixed up with emotional investment. Letting go of attachment can free us up to be truly compassionate and a dedicated mindfulness practice can give us the courage and wisdom to do so.
