‘Monks, this is the direct path for the purification of beings, for the
surmounting of sorrow and lamentation, for the disappearance of dukkha
and discontent, for the acquiring of the true method, for the realization
of nibbāna, namely these four foundations of mindfulness.’
The Satipatthana Sutta
The Ᾱnāpānasati meditation practice and Four Foundations of Mindfulness are woven into a system of practice which when developed and cultivated is of great fruit and great benefit. This retreat follows the Anapanasati Sutta teaching on the Mindfulness of Breathing.
This retreat follows the Buddha's teaching on mindfulness meditation. Based on the Buddha's principal discourse on the subject found in the Anapanasati sutta of the Pali Canon we explore our human experience rooted in the six senses; from the perspective of body, feeling and mind in context of mindfulness with breathing. There is a solid amount of meditation on the retreat with significant periods of silence complemented by ritual and devotion. An opportunity to deepen our practice of meditation and develop positive habits of mindfulness.
