Maximize Your Meditation, a retreat with Culadasa
June 19-24, 2016 at Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, New York
Understanding Attention & Awareness as Mindfulness Tools
To ask Culadasa questions about the retreat, email him firstname.lastname@example.org
The words “attention” and “awareness” are often used interchangeably, but they do not mean the same thing. A clear understanding of these two ways of knowing is important if you want your meditation practice to truly soar.
Buddhist teacher and neuroscientist Culadasa (John Yates) guides you on an exploration of how to skillfully work with attention and awareness to cultivate mindfulness and ultimately change your thoughts, feelings, and habits for the better.
Through lecture, discussion, exercises, and meditation, you play with attention—a process of exclusion where you single out and hone in on something to analyze or interpret it. And you practice awareness, which is more open and inclusive and takes in the larger view to provide overall context for your experience.
As you begin to work skillfully with attention and awareness, you see the potential for mindfulness—the optimum interaction between the two—to completely transform who you are.
Beginning and seasoned meditators are welcome; no previous experience is necessary.
