How do we move out of our heads and into the moment to moment felt sense of our embodied experience?
The Buddha said, “There is one thing that when cultivated and regularly practiced, leads to deep spiritual intention, to peace, to mindfulness and clear comprehension, to vision and knowledge, to a happy life here and now and to the culmination of wisdom and awakening. And what is that one thing? It is mindfulness centered on the body.”
In this daylong retreat we will develop methods for bringing this sense of mindful embodiment to our moment to moment experience, and create a quiet refuge together to cultivate kind attention to this body and nourish the heart. Through periods of guided and silent meditation, walking meditation, gentle mindful movement, a Dharma talk and discussion, we will explore for ourselves the river of aliveness that we call the body, and the joy that can be found in living in and through our bodies, here and now.
Please bring a bag lunch. There are also dining options nearby.
