Day of Mindfulness August 16, Riverside Church, 20-T, 10:00am-4:30pm

Hello Friends,

We often use the phrase 'stopping, resting, calming, looking deeply.' What is stopping?  Who is it that  is 'resting and calming,' and how do we 'look deeply?.'

We will  do things a little differently at this Day of Mindfulness so that each of us can look into our questions and needs, as we practice 'stopping, calming, resting and looking deeply.'

Our schedule will include both morning and afternoon  periods of a lying down total relaxation exercise; a period of self-guided practice; the opportunity for individual interviews with David. 

And we continue with our basic practice of breath awareness as we have sitting and walking meditation; mindful movements; eating together in mindfulness and Dharma Sharing.

Schedule [Subject to Change]: 10:00am-4:30pm

10:00-10:45am:  Mindful Movements/Sitting Meditation/Walking Meditation

10:50: 11:20: Lying down body awareness/relaxation

11:30-12:30: Personal Practice: each person decides what mix of sitting, walking, movement he/she needs [in silence].
