Ella – Part 1 – 14 July – Mindfulness

The Many Meanings of Mindfulness: An Experiential Meditation Day

The Four Foundations of Mindfulness Series

Teacher: Ella Titman Tamari
Date and time: Sunday, 14 July 2019, 10am to 4.30pm
Venue: The Pales LD1 5UH

The word mindfulness entered our conversation vocabulary in such a big way, I thought it would be a good idea to start the Four Foundations of Mindfulness series by exploring what mindfulness might mean in the context of Buddhist insight meditation practice.

This day is one of five day retreats exploring the four foundations of mindfulness. You are welcome to join any or all of the days. The instructions will be given with reference to Analayo’s book Satipatthana Meditation, A Practice Guide. Analayo’s book is linked with recorded guided meditation instructions so it will be possible to take the day’s theme into your practice, treat the days as an opportunity to sit with like minded people or as a one-off taster.

We will explore the meaning of the word mindfulness with experiential information sharing, guided and silent meditation and discussion. Suitable for all.

I began practicing yoga in 2000 and meditation in 2004. I discovered Gaia House in 2008 while exploring mindfulness as a counselling continues professional development possibility. I started facilitating the Mid Wales meditation group in 2013 and in 2016 I was invited by my teachers Yanai Postelnik and Kirsten Kratz to join the Gaia House Community Dharma Leaders (CDL) programme.

Committing to Buddhist Insight Meditation led to significant and ongoing positive change in my life. I love sharing my experience of exploring the Buddha’s teaching on and off the mat with fellow seekers and followers of the Buddhist paths.
