Teacher: Leslie Ellestad In this daylong meditation retreat we will look closely at the ways we can work with the thinking mind:
- through calming the mind
- mindfulness of thinking through noting
- mindfulness of the attitude in the mind and deepening our awareness of it's impact on thought content
- exploration of wise intention, the second step of the eightfold path
- cultivation of skillful attitude through the practice of compassion There will be alternate periods of sitting and walking and an opportunity for Q & A.
Please bring your lunch. If you like to sit on the floor, bringing your own meditation cushion or bench is recommended. Supplies are available at YogaMCC for purchase.
