Daylong Retreat: The Four Foundations of Mindfulness
In this daylong retreat, we will discuss each of the four foundations of mindfulness – the body, feeling tones, mental states, and dhammas. Mindful examination of these foundations reveals the true nature of phenomena, leading to clear seeing and full awakening. In the satipatthana sutta this is described as the direct path to liberation. Each of the foundations will be discussed and experienced through guided meditations, dharma talks and small group discussions.
This daylong retreat is part of a 10 month series on some of the essential teachings of Buddhism. This daylong retreat is open to anyone with experience in mindfulness meditation equivalent to SIMS Introductory Meditation Class.
The study guide and materials for this daylong are the same as for the Four Foundations of Mindfulness class, and they can be found here.
