An On-Site Full Day Offering
with Half Day Option
With Matthew Daniell
In the Buddha’s foundational mindfulness practices we use awareness of the senses, body, breath, thoughts, emotions, and change. These intentional mindfulness practices help us to reduce stress, have a more skillful kind relationship to our thoughts and emotions and live in a more connected and fresh way. All of these are what are cultivated meditation practices. Open awareness has more to do with simply recognizing and resting in the knowing quality of our being. It is natural, uncultivated, spacious and inclusive. In this day-long retreat we will explore how together these two distinct meditative approaches can help us to live with more calm, kindness, and open hearted clarity in the face of challenges on and off the cushion.
There is a half day option for this offering which runs from 9am-12:30pm.
