TEACHER: Phillip Moffitt

The Buddha’s Satipatthana teaching of the four foundations of mindfulness begins with mindfulness of the body. One of the key instructions is to be mindful of the four elements – earth, water, fire, and wind. In other suttas, he includes space and consciousness in his list of elements.

In this three-day retreat, we will explore how to deepen our practice by focusing on each of these elements. Our specific focus will be on recognizing on how each element manifests as stillness and movement. Included in our inquiry will be the subtle understandings of emotions and mind states that are revealed through such practice.

This retreat is open to students of all levels of practice.
