The Buddhist Mind

The Buddhist Mind 
Yin Yoga & The Four Foundations of Mindfulness
Weekend Intensive: November 23 – 25, 2018
with Whit Hornsberger 

The practice of insight (vipassana) meditation is built upon the teachings of the Buddhist discourse, the Maha Satipatthana Sutta or The Four Foundations of Mindfulness. The Foundations of Mindfulness form the bedrock of mindfulness meditation practice and are considered the domain of the meditator. Once established through ardent application, The Four Foundations of Mindfulness give rise to transformative experiential insights into ultimate reality, liberating the individual from the fetters of physical and mental suffering.

Our weekend of insight will encompass discussion on Buddhist theory, exploring and integrating in detail The Four Foundations of Mindfulness and vipassana meditation with the practice of Yin Yoga. Each of our sessions will include discourse and application of one of the foundations of mindfulness to our meditation and Yin posture practice, building systematically and progressively throughout the weekend. Through direct felt experience each practitioner will bare witness to insights capable of radically shifting how we engage with the mind, body and life itself.

Sessions can be taken individually without problem. For those seeking a comprehensive
understanding of vipassana meditation practice, the full weekend will give rise to both
an intellectual and experiential understanding of what is mindfulness, the psychological
experience of Yin Yoga and the transformative power of insight (vipassana) meditation.

These workshops are created for and are accessible to all levels of practitioners and geared specifically to anyone driven by an innate curiosity for insight into the enigma of life and a passion to move beyond the limitations of the conditioned mind.
