The Four Foundations of Mindfulness: An Experiential Workshop

with Santacitta Bhikkhuni
Saturday, December 12, 1:00 – 3:30 p.m. CST 

Theosophical Society - The foundations of mindfulness. Samacitta Bhikkhuni guides us to investigate our present moment experience through mindfulness of body, feelings, mind, and principles.The Four Foundations of Mindfulness is the framework for all Buddhist meditation practice. These ancient teachings guide us to investigate our present moment experience through mindfulness of body, feelings, mind, and principles. Developing these four foundations liberates the mind from ignorance, allowing us to let go of wrong views and opening the mind to deep insight into 'the way things are.' This is not an intellectual understanding, but a direct seeing that has the power to radically transform the way we relate to ourselves and the world. 

 

The workshop will include:

  • An overview of the Four Foundations of Mindfulness
  • Explanation of how to practice each aspect
  • Guided meditations for applying mindfulness
  • Q&A and discussion

$40 

Registration includes on-demand access to a recording of the workshop that can be viewed for one week following the date it was presented.
