Description:

We all want to be calm and peaceful. Much of our restlessness and agitation stems from an untrained mind and lack of clear perception of what’s happening in our mind and body moment by moment. During this daylong retreat we will train our hearts and minds to find a calm abiding in the present moment. How will we accomplish this?
We will follow the Buddha’s teachings on the Four Foundations of Mindfulness; being mindful and sensitive to our bodies, beginning with the sensations of breathing and expanding to include all other types of physical sensations, sounds, moods, emotions and thoughts and images.
Settling the mind into the body, noticing and caring about the flow of experience, our hearts can settle, and we can all realize that the peace and ease we are looking for in our lives is the natural peace and ease of our own mind.
