Mindfulness and Awareness Meditation Intensive: An Approach to Greater Sanity, Happiness, Wisdom and Compassion

Buddhist Meditation is 2,600 years old, a profound and living tradition handed down over the centuries from one practitioner to the next. In this day-long program, designed for beginners and experienced meditators alike, we will explore the two basic approaches to meditation:

Mindfulness – the ability to bring one’s mind back from dreams to what is happening in the present moment. The benefits of mindfulness include:

  • awareness of the extent to which we spend our lives lost in reflection;
  • increased peace of mind; and
  • the developing ability to focus on what is happening now.

Awareness is the ability to be mentally present, effortlessly, seeing the real world of the present accurately, stripped of preconception, and with compassion. It includes and builds on mindfulness and leads to enlightenment, itself.

The day will consist of talks, discussion, and meditation practice led by one of WBC’s four senior teachers, John Baker.

Schedule: 10:00 AM – 5:30 PM

10:00 AM – 1:00 PM and 2:30 – 5:30 PM

Lunch will be from 1:00 – 2:30 PM – you may bring your lunch or eat out at one of the local restaurants.
