The anapanasati (mindfulness of breathing) sutta is a much-loved teaching from the Buddha that quietly and beautifully guides us towards real tranquility and wisdom through awareness of the breathing body.
On this day retreat we will explore experientially the key themes from the sutta - body, feelings, mind and wisdom - to enhance our experience and practice of both mindfulness and metta (kindness).
The day will include meditation, reflection, body work and communication.
At lunch time we will have a vegan pot luck - please bring food to share, or you can pick something up nearby if you prefer.
Open to everyone.
Advayamati has taught buddhism and meditation in the UK for 15 years and has practiced shiatsu for over 30. He is particularly interested in combining bodywork with meditation and dharma.
