Mindfulness in Context

Mindfulness in Context

Sunday, December 9, at 3 - 5pm

Mindfulness is becoming more and more popular as a useful antidote to busyness, information overload, and rampant attention deficit disorder.  The word translated as “mindfulness” is “smriti” in Sanskrit and “sati” in Pali, both literally meaning “remembering.”  In this interactive teaching, we will explore the meaning and purpose of mindfulness, as well as the technique itself, according to the ancient texts of the Indian tradition.  What are we are supposed to be remembering when engaging in this meditative practice?


Cost: Suggested Donation $25
