CONTINUUM: Moving Inquiry with Megan Bathory-Peeler

Unfolding as moving mindfulness, Continuum consistently brings one into the present moment through simple awareness of breath and wave motion. By being present to what is in the moment, one can make more informed choices for action that are more symbiotic, less effortful, and also maintain a focus on connection rather than on fear or isolation.

MODES OF MINDFULNESS: A Half-Day Retreat* with Adhimutti Bhikkhuni
Saturday, June 30, 1-4:30pm ~ In the gradual training, different modes of mindfulness are detaled and practiced. It is helpful to be clear about these different modes, as different modes are suitable for the different contexts that we find ourselves in: from the quietness and simplicity of retreats, to daily life where there are many more demands on our attention. Being able to shift between these modes is a big help in understanding how to integrate our dhamma practice into these different contexts in which we find ourselves. In this half-day program, we will clarify these different modes of mindfulness and also how they apply to our conduct as well as the rest of the path. $20 plus teacher dana ~ register here!
