Alan will teach and guide meditations that explore the infinite possibilities of mindfulness, probing the very nature of human identity and opening to the possibility of freedom. We will engage Vipashyana mindfulness techniques such as using the body and feelings as objects of meditation with the goal of cultivating a pure mindfulness where we can be awake, aware and at peace.
The Four Applications of Mindfulness
A central message of the Buddha’s teachings is that the mind is purified of its afflictions through the integrated cultivation of meditative quiescence (shamatha) and contemplative insight (vipashyana). During this retreat, we will focus on the four applications of mindfulness, which form the foundation of Buddhist insight practice. These include mindfulness of the body, feelings, mental states, and mental objects. As we investigate the nature of these features of our existence, we will probe the very nature of human identity and the possibility of freedom. A central theme will be the cultivation of pure mindfulness, in which we will increasingly distinguish between phenomena presented to our senses and the conceptual projections that we impose on reality. The retreat will consist of lectures, guided meditations, and discussions led by Alan Wallace.
This will be a non-residential retreat. Accommodations can be reserved at:
