DEEPEN RESPITE AWAKEN
The Four Foundations of Mindfulness.
This meditation retreat is offered to everyone who is interested in the intersection of the Buddhist teachings of the Four Foundations of Mindfulness and MBSR (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction), MSC (Mindful Self-Compassion), or other Mindfulness-Based Interventions.
This is a great retreat for clinicians, other professionals and caregivers who teach mindfulness, those who are interested in eventually teaching mindfulness, or simply anyone for their own curiosity of the subject. Contemplation of the Four Foundations of Mindfulness supports and enriches the practice at every stage along the developmental path of practice.
Caring for others can become exhausting when we don’t pause to nourish the heart and mind. Through exploration of the Four Foundations, practice deepens as burdens of caregiving diminish. A silent meditation retreat can offer just the right medicine to awaken, or re-awaken, your purpose as a teacher.
The retreat will be held primarily in noble – companionable- silence with daily deepening instructions, loving kindness and compassion practices and small group check-ins with the teachers. Each day has periods of guided and unguided meditations, walking meditations, and we suggest a daily mindful movement practice.
A familiarity with formal meditation practice is assumed.
starts Sunday October 31
ends Saturday November 6
