Mindfulness of the Body

This retreat, suitable for both beginning and experienced meditators, will work primarily with the first of the Four Foundations of Mindfulness, that of the body. We will spend the beginning of the retreat exploring mindfulness of breathing, then expand into an exploration of the body with the 32 Parts of the Body Meditation and the 4 Elements meditation. Various methods will be taught to strengthen mindfulness of the body, and to explore the mind/body connection.

Just as we garden, tending out plants and pulling weeds, so we need to cultivate the ground of heart and mind. Uprooting obscurations and dealing with hindrances are part of this work.

Bob Stahl
How to work with self-loathing and doubt. How the Noble truths lead to freedom. How the Buddha guides us on the eight-fold steps on how to live our lives, train our minds and grow in wisdom. The Dhamma is most excellent in the beginning, middle, and end.
