The Nature Inside: A Women's Daylong on the Four Elements

Open to all self-identified Women. In the Buddha’s instruction on cultivating mindfulness using the body, one method he taught was the use of the four elements: Fire, Earth, Air, and Water. Throughout this meditation daylong for self-identified women, we will use the four elements practice to investigate our own relationship to our body and to remind us of our connection to the natural world. Our schedule will flow between sitting and movement meditation, guidance, and silence. Join us for a connective, welcoming, and restorative retreat.

March Insight Meditation 1-Month Retreat Application - 2024

Awareness, or consciousness, is the very heart of sentient life. Yet in our practice we may not have learned how to meditate directly on this aspect of our experience. In this retreat we will explore the nature of awareness in three stages. First, we will develop concentration through mindfulness of breathing. Then we'll introduce lovingkindness meditation, inviting the beautiful qualities of the heart. Finally, we'll focus on specific meditative techniques that allow us to rest in the pure nature of awareness itself.
