These days, mindfulness is being hyped as the answer to every problem, from attention deficit disorder to global conflict. But what is mindfulness really? In this retreat we explore mindfulness from all angles. How is it cultivated? Why should we practice? Participants will be guided in Breath Focus from an advanced perspective, seeing how this practice develops four aspects of mindful awareness: concentration, sensory clarity, equanimity, and insight. While the practice of mindfulness has many personal benefits, we will find that, ultimately, we cultivate mindful awareness in the spirit of love and service for others.

This retreat involves both talks and practice. In the talks Shinzen will elucidate how mindfulness is defined from numerous points of view. He will also discuss factors that could facilitate or inhibit a global mindfulness revolution. The practice sessions will parallel the talks but from an experiential point of view. You'll be guided in Breath Focus from an advanced perspective, exploring how this practice develops four aspects of mindful awareness: concentration power, sensory clarity, equanimity, and insight.

Retreat begins September 4th, 2012.
