“If someone is aware continuously, naturally wisdom will slowly, slowly grow.” ~ Sayadaw U Tejaniya
This workshop will offer an opportunity to develop our meditation practice beyond the familiar structures of sitting and walking. Though formal practice is helpful, only when our practice becomes more continuous will we be truly living our practice. What would it be like to bring mindfulness practice into our relationships of speaking? How do we dialogue mindfully? Is it possible to maintain awareness while using a smart-phone or other device? How does practice help in challenging times? We will explore these and other challenging (and fun) areas of practice during this day together.
This program is appropriate for both beginners and more experienced meditators. There will be periods of sitting and walking, guided meditation as well as reflections to support your practice. There will also be plenty of time for questions and comments.
