Description:
We will be practicing with teachings of Buddhism, how to stay present and embodied in the moment, aware of and working with mind states that create obstacles to awakening, while cultivating qualities that enhance well-being in everyday life. This will include the Buddhist and scientific explorations of craving, grasping and cultivation of compassion. The teachings will be offered within a traditional practice day of sitting meditation, walking and movement, including lovingkindness and compassion practices.
