Deepening Mindfulness

This is an 8 Week Class aimed at deepening Mindfulness through an exploration of the Four Foundations of Mindfulness as well as exploring the Four Noble Truths.  Specifically, the Four Noble truths address the nature of human suffering; the causes of suffering; the ending (or softening) of suffering; and a ‘Way Out’…or the 8 Fold Path (which in modern day language addresses the issue of prevention).

The class includes 8 two hour classes with a written Recap and audio guided meditations informed by the 4 Foundations of Mindfulness to guide ways that these teachings can be touched and embodied.

The class model consists of:

1) A Teaching .

2) Meditation Practice.

3) Contemplative Dialogue, to make it come alive in daily life & explorations.

Additionally, we use a book, Dancing With Life:  Buddhist Insights for Finding Meaning and Joy in the Face of Suffering, by Phillip Moffitt.

Each week of this 8 Week Course explores a specific Foundation of Mindfulness and one of the Four Noble Truths.

Cost: $500 (a sliding fee is available, given specific need).

Location: North Laguna Beach.
