Investigating the Four Foundations of Mindfulness, the four ways of establishing mindfulness as expressed within the Satipaṭṭhāna Sutta. Whilst having their roots in Buddhist psychology, the themes and explorations will be presented in terms of secular mindfulness programmes such as MBSR and MBCT.
This kind of ‘hybrid retreat’ is a new innovation and is designed to meet the needs of these challenging times. We are trying out a new form and hope that it will provide a powerful way to integrate retreat and daily life.
We propose to complete the Retreat in 3 live sessions per day online, live and interactive, via the Zoom platform. You will need a stable internet connection and flexibility to create the space you need to engage fully with the programme.
Online participation shares much of the same conventions as ‘in-person’ participation: You are joining an immersive retreat and you will be as visible in the virtual classroom as you would be in-person. Our virtual classroom will use Zoom, a free video-conferencing tool that is the platform of choice for courses like this one. Zoom is very user friendly whatever your level of experience or comfort. Be assured – if you can click on a link then you can use this tool. Just as we have preparations to make to attend in-person retreats, there are preparations that we need to make in order to ensure we can maximise the immersive experience of this Retreat.

First day: Wednesday 21st Sept 18.00h – 20.00h
