The Four Foundations 1: Strengthening the Power of Mindfulness While Living in These Challenging Times
Sunday, September 20; 10:00am - 1:00pm
Suggested contribution: $15-30 registration + teacher donation
The Four Foundations or Forms of Presence are 1) the body; 2) feelings; 3) mind: 4) laws of experience. When facing the enormity of loss and uncertainty, we need more than ever to uncover and strengthen our inner resources.
In this wholistic approach to mindfulness practice, we nurture our capacity to calm the mind and learn to rest in the present moment. By taking up the practice of four foundations, we can awaken to a new and transformative way of relating to the ever-changing conditions in our lives. We can discover the fruit of inner freedom which allows us to respond with open-hearted awareness and compassion rather than habitually react by contracting when encountering the difficulties in every day life.
We will explore this theme in two separate 1/2 day workshops.
Part 1: Mindfulness of Body and Feelings
September 20, 10am-1:00pm
Part 2 Mindfulness of Mind and Laws of Experience
October 17, 10am-1:00pm
You're welcome to register for either one but encouraged to take both if possible.
