Shambhala Stockholm presents

Exploring the Four Foundations

of Mindfulness

with Dorothea Gädeke

and Alex Paterson

23-25 of April

 

The teachings and practices of the Four Foundations of Mindfulness are among the oldest Buddhist teachings transmitted to us. The teachings and practices are so basically basic that they apply to any human, beyond any religion.

Interestingly, each era has its own view and interpretation; nowadays, the term Mindfulness is often used in an inflationary and commercial way. In this retreat we will explore and take a fresh look on Chögyam Trungpa`s practices and teachings on Mindfulness of body, life, effort, mind and how they connect to basic Shambhala teachings. We will explore concepts and practices that deepen our understanding of the mind/body connection and highlight ways that the body is a direct portal to presence.

Content:

Meditation instruction, sitting and walking meditation, contemplation practice, talks, movement practice, Shamatha Yoga, exchange in small groups, and time for playfulness and pauses

 

Setting:

We will meet on Zoom

The program is designed to mix periods of focused meditation and movement practices with everyday life. Participants can join for the entire time, or for one full day.

Participants:

Anyone is welcome - longtime meditators as well as those with no experience of meditation. No pre-requisites!

Timing:

Fri. 23 of April : 19.00 – 21.00

Sat. 24 of April 13th: 10.00 – 13.00

Sun 25 of April 14th: 10.00 – 13.00

She has a longtime and long-distance love affair with the Scandinavian sangha.
