Mindfulness: Connecting More Deeply with Our Inner and Outer Worlds

Providence Renewal Centre (map)

During this non-residential retreat, we will practise bringing mindfulness to our present experiences through body awareness. Cultivating embodied awareness brings many benefits, enabling us to connect calmly and clearly with our inner and outer worlds.

We will explore various aspects of embodiment, including walking, standing and sitting meditations, and breath as an object of embodied awareness, all as a means to support our growing consciousness. Since our inner practice is in service to the outer world, this is how we can contribute to our collective care of ourselves, each other and our home.

Teacher: Heather Martin. Heather has been meditating for 40 years in various traditions. Theravada has been her main practice since 1981 when she trained in the style of SN Goenka for eight years. She received her teacher training through Spirit Rock Meditation Centre in Woodacre, California and is the guiding teacher for Salt Spring Insight Meditation on Salt Spring Island, B.C.  has practiced Tibetan Dzogchen with Tsoknyi Rinpoche, Vipassana with Burmese master Sayadaw U Tejaniya, and more recently the early Foundations of Mindfulness with scholar-monk Bikkhu Analayo.
