The Four Protective Meditations

Social Awakenment

From the wide range of meditation subjects found in the Buddha’s discourses, the ancient teachers of the Theravada tradition have selected four subjects and grouped them into a set known as “the four protective meditations”: recollection of the Buddha, the meditation on loving-kindness, contemplating the unattractive nature of the body, and mindfulness of death. The four are called “protective meditations” because each offers protection from a particular unwholesome tendency and reinforces a beneficial quality essential to the path.

Social Awakening: Realizing the Basic Goodness of Society

Social Awakenment

In this online meditation retreat, we will explore a contemplative path to social enlightenment or collective awakening, which calls us to transcend individualism and work together to create a more peaceful and sustainable society grounded in the realization of the innate goodness of all beings as well as the basic goodness of human society itself.

This retreat is for people who want to bring Buddhist practice into everyday life. By taking a closer look at the teachings of the Metta Sutta, the Buddha’s sermon on impartial kindness, we will find an overview of the entire practice path. Sylvia Boorstein shows us how all of our life experience—our relational life in the world as well as our spiritual life—is the perfect venue for practice. April 2012

Meditation in Motion

Meditation in Motion

Jill Satterfield will lead us on an exploration of meditation using the four postures: sitting, standing, walking, and lying down, as well as some restorative yoga poses. She will teach us to stay aware of our breath (sometimes breathing meditation can be a bit boring, Jill says, so part of her training will be to keep us interested in the breath.) Ultimately we will be able to meditate no matter where we are and what we are doing. February 2012
