In Sedona, we have a Peace Park known as the Amitabha Stupa. It is a beautiful outdoor venue and a spiritual destination for prayer, meditation, and the experience of peace in a sacred place. This place was conceived of and built for people of all faiths. It is a gorgeous venue where I go and sit and meditate, or just be with myself to turn off the "noise" from the outside world.
When I teach meditation, the biggest obstacle that people share with me about their practice is the fact that they can't stop their thoughts. Well...I am here to let you off the hook and know, it's the nature of the mind to think. Just as the heart beats, the mind thinks. So, it's okay. Remember we are training our minds to slow down the stream of thoughts.
