Life As Practice

If you’ve started a meditation practice, you’ve probably noticed many areas of life where mindfulness is not present.   You might feel relatively mindful in the simplicity of a quiet room, but the practice goes out the window during difficult moments at work. You might feel present during your alone time but much less so with other people.  You might not even have a consistent time in your schedule for formal meditation, and you’ve decided that as a result, it’s not possible to live a mindful life.  

It’s very common for meditation to feel separate from day-to-day experience, and many of us carry self-defeating beliefs about the possibilities for mindfulness in a busy life.  Challenge your beliefs and explore integration in Life As A Practice, a day-long retreat with Jason Ryterband.  In this day of mindfulness, you will:

    • Learn techniques specifically designed to encourage integration between mindfulness and daily life, such as Shinzen Young’s Motion-Challenge Sequences, Micro-Hits, and Background Practice.

    • Explore the areas of your life where mindfulness is absent, and find out why.

    • Design custom strategies to bring mindfulness in where you want it.

If you’re new to meditation, you’ll be given techniques to use, with recordings to match, based on Shinzen’s Feel In, Focus In, and Note Everything.  If you have a meditationpractice, you’re welcome to bring that along!  These integration strategies can be applied, however you choose to meditate.
