Practicing the Anapanasati Sutta

Saturday, July 16, 2022 - 10:00 am to 4:30 pm

An On-Site Workshop

With Jim Austin

Anapanasati Sutta: The Buddha's road map for using the breath as the foundation for practice. 

As practitioners we are introduced to using the breath early on and many of us have been working with the breath for years. Instructions on working with the breath have been passed down for thousands of years and been greatly influenced by commentaries on the sutta. In this workshop we will look at this sutta with fresh eyes, looking closely at how we might use the actual words of the sutta itself to inform and support our practice as lay practitioners. We will be sitting together and practicing the sixteen basic steps of the instructions outlined in the sutta.
