This daylong is for people experienced in mindfulness practice.
Maranasati is a highly valued contemplation and practice in Buddhism. Buddha described Mindfulness of Death as 'supreme' of all the mindfulness practices. He encouraged maranasati to cultivate equanimity, bring insight into impermanence, awaken freedom from unconsciousness, appreciate the preciousness of human birth, and as a preparation for our own death.
In our day together we will explore a variety of Maranasati contemplations and practices including: awareness of the body; investigation of our beliefs and views about death; and contemplations of the reality of impermanence and mortality.
We will utilize the skills of awareness and investigation through sitting practice, visualization and inquiry. Please be aware that some of the images we will view are of dead and decomposing bodies. This daylong is for people experienced in mindfulness practice.
Young Adults (18-26) and Seniors (65+ with limited income) are invited to attend this daylong for $25.
