Practice and understand the theory of the core aspects of Mindfulness Training: steadiness, presence and wisdom. Explore “Yin” aspects and approaches to meditation, developing “Yin” qualities of mind and heart: receptivity, gentleness, compassion, reflection, stillness and silence.

The Mindfulness Immersion will be structured around the Buddha’s core teaching on Mindfulness — The Satipatthana Sutta — The Sutta on the Four Foundations of Mindfulness. This text provides a treasure trove of material to share with students in a Yin classroom. Meditative themes will include theoretical and practical approaches to these Four Foundations: Body (kaya), Feeling tones (vedana), Mind-states (citta), and Categories of Experience (dhamma).

For each category of contemplation (ie. body, mind-states, etc), a variety of ‘yin’ and ‘yang’ forms of meditative tools will be considered and explored.

Working with the Hindrances (Aversion, Desire, Restlessness, Sleepiness and Doubt): strategies and antidotes.

Develop your ability to hold space, effectively use your voice and explore teaching cues that support the experiential learning and the unfolding insight of your students.

Address approaches to teaching meditation in a secular, non-religious manner.

Enliven your sequencing with new poses and variations.
