Monthly Sitting and Inquiry with NYI Guiding Teacher, Gina Sharpe. These regularly scheduled evenings begin with a guided meditation and then open up to our practice questions allowing us time to deepen in Sangha through mindful community discussion.
Gina Sharpe is the Guiding Teacher of NYI, which she co-founded in 1998. She has been studying and practicing the Dharma for several years in Asia and the United States across many traditions and has been teaching since 1994.
We continue to explore a number of ways to deepen practice in daily life, working with challenges difficulties, grounding in the body, working with intention, and practicing with speech and interaction as well as others.
Even though we talk a lot about mindfulness, we often don't fully understand what the Buddha meant by "samma sati" or right mindfulness. This talk explores samma sati and also "sati-panna"-mindfulness wisdom: the wisdom that naturally develops when we pay attention.
