While “mindfulness” has become popularized, much has been lost from the original teachings of the Buddha. Join Poep Sa Frank Jude Boccio for this unique four-course program designed to ground you in a firm understanding and practice of mindfulness, with an emphasis on cultivating mindfulness in the midst of our full and busy lives. While each segment can be taken individually, the full curriculum will take you through the complete practice of satipatthana (the establishments of mindfulness) over the course of one year.
Through the meditative techniques of “shamatha-vipassana,” (calming and insight) you will learn how to explore the ways you currently relate to your own experience and learn to step back from conditioned reactivity and into a creative and free response to lived experience.
This is meditation as the true fruit of Yoga – meditation as a way of life, recapturing and integrating all the facets of our lives so that we can delight in the joy, peace, and equanimity that arise from understanding the truth of who we really are.
NOTE: Dress comfortably for sitting meditation and gentle yoga-asana practice. Suitable for beginners, including those with no previous experience, as well as those who wish to sharpen their meditative skills.
Part Two: Feelings
Feelings arise and pass away incessantly and our conditioned reactions to them can cause us and those around us much suffering. Mindfulness of feelings can take us from conditioned reactivity to creative response.
