Mindfulness of thinking is a different way to practice meditation. By becoming aware of thoughts and emotions in meditation, you can become kinder to yourself, more interested in your inner experience, and more flexible and autonomous in your meditation practice. This retreat will provide opportunities to write about your meditation sittings, talk about them with Siff, and hear what other meditators experience in our online forum.

Retreat begins September 3rd

Jason Siff is the co-founder of the Skillful Meditation Project in Idyllwild, CA, which is has developed the meditation technique called Recollective Awareness. He has taught at Esalen Institute and the Barre Center for Buddhist Studies, and has been published in Insight Journal in Spring, 2005.
