Mindfulness of the Breath with Gil Fronsdal Mindfulness of the Breath with Gil Fronsdal Posted September 21, 2009 - Daylong Retreats, Special Events Sat, October 17, 9:00am – 4:30pm Practicing mindfulness on retreat is one of the foundations for maturing insight meditation. The simplicity, silence and support of retreats contribute to letting go of many of the distractions that get in the way of clear seeing. Retreats also are a wonderful environment for developing a continuity of awareness for an extended period. This is a daylong retreat with alternating periods of sitting and walking meditation, instruction in mindfulness practice and a dharma talk. It is recommended for both beginners and experienced practitioners. Bring lunch.
