Mindfulness (sati) is the first of the seven factors of awakening, and part of the Noble Eightfold Path. What is mindfulness exactly? What are the different modes of being mindful? What supports its arising? How does mindfulness function as a balancing factor in practice and daily life? What is the relationship between mindfulness and wisdom? Join us for an experiential day of exploring different modes and aspects of mindfulness through similes from the suttas. There will be guided practice, silence, and many opportunities for Q/A. Appropriate for both beginners and experienced practitioners who wish to deepen their mindfulness practice.
