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.
