During this daylong retreat, we will explore qualities of attention that refine our mindfulness practice and provide the ground for insight into the truth of the way things are. Inclining our minds towards a deeply restful, allowing attention opens us to joy and ease. Clear perception of moment-to-moment experience unclouds our attention. Letting go of a mistaken sense of ownership of passing experience deepens our understanding of the truth. These capacities of mind are available to all of us, and they are the seeds of awakening.
This retreat is appropriate for practitioners with all levels of experience and will include dharma teachings, mindfulness meditation instructions for both sitting and walking, and time for questions. We will invite integration of the wholesome qualities of mind of mindfulness, lovingkindness, and compassion to support a continuity of present moment awareness that gives rise to insight. Everyone is welcome.
Full and partial scholarships are available up to 72 hours before the start of the program. This program will not be recorded.
Tara Mulay was trained and authorized to teach by the Insight Meditation Society in Barre, Massachusetts and is a Guiding Teacher at Spirit Rock Meditation Center in Woodacre, California. She began her intensive mindfulness practice while working as a criminal defense attorney for 20 years. Her teachings and practice stem from the lineage of Mahasi Sayadaw, for which she is particularly grateful, and draw influence from other Theravadan and Early Buddhist lineages. Tara is of South Asian heritage and felt initially drawn to dharma practice upon encountering the Buddha’s teachings rejecting social caste as a measure of worth and of capacity for awakening. She believes classical Buddhist practices, designed to cultivate compassion, non-greed, non-hatred, and non-delusion, are uniquely potent vehicles for empowering people in marginalized communities.
