Mindfulness of the Body

This class uses the Buddha’s teachings on mindfulness of the body as a strategy for calming the mind and developing liberating insight. A direct, moment-to-moment knowing of sensations is often obscured by the mind’s habitual conceptualizing. We will explore several of the Buddha’s instructions designed to transform the mind’s understanding of embodiment, and release the mind from the pain of unnecessary grasping. Participants will be expected to use the teachings as a focus of their meditation and daily practice.
