with Phillip Moffitt

12/1/2017 7:00 PM  9:00 PM (Friday evening) at Seattle Insight Meditation Center, (2729 6th Ave. S., Seattle, 98134) (Map It)

In this Friday night dharma talk, Phillip Moffitt will give an overview of the four qualities needed for mindfulness practice as described in the Satipatthana Sutta.  The four qualities are diligence (energy), clear knowing, mindfulness, and a mind free from desires and discontent.  Through an exploration of how each quality applies to each of the Four Foundations of Mindfulness, Phillip will point the way to cultivating these qualities in our meditation practice.

In addition to Phillip’s talk exploring the four qualities needed for mindfulness, the evening will include a period of meditation and time for discussion.
