We will get to know the 4 Foundations of Mindfulness as taught by the Buddha in the Satipatthana Sutta.
This text will be the main inspiration for the course. Having a grounded understanding of mindfulness as laid out in the teachings, allows us to add another element to our yoga practice, in asana, meditation and all of life. There are many ways described in detail how we can cultivate this present moment awareness in all experiences of life, to build momentum and encourage a trust and willingness to see things just as they are.
Each evening will include, guided meditation, discussion and how to bring this practice in to your daily life.
If you are a regular meditator, please come along to join and support the growing sangha, if you are new to meditation, this will be perfect to give you the techniques and knowledge to have your own meditation practice. The intention is for us to create a regular sitting practice as a community ongoing.
When: Tuesday May 2nd 2017
