Foundations of Mindfulness: Training the Mind, Freeing the Heart
January 3, 2020 @ 8:00 am - January 5, 2020 @ 6:00 pm PST
Mindful awareness is the foundation for living with wisdom and compassion. In this retreat, we will explore mindfulness practices, which are at the heart of the Buddha’s teachings. These core teachings support insight and awakening, as well as bringing genuine joy, peace, understanding, and freedom to our practice and our lives. During this retreat, we will learn skills and techniques to (re)establish and refine mindfulness in the body, mind, and heart, and discover ways to more fully embody and bring these practices with us out into the world.
The retreat will include a variety of sitting and walking meditations, talks, group practice check-ins, mindful movement, meditation outdoors on the land, and time for discussion and Q&A.
Open to all levels of experience.
NONRESIDENTIAL RETREAT. NOBLE SILENCE. LIGHT BREAKFAST AND LUNCH INCLUDED.
