The Four Foundations of Mindfulness Weekend Retreat

Location: Minnesota Sakya Center

The Mindfulness meditation is learning to live life fully in the present moment. To be present, one need to bring awareness and pay attention to your present moments so that one may not miss many of them due to judgements, pleasant or unpleasent, good or bad arising inwardly or outwardly. This requires a great amount of self-kindness and self-compassion to face pain and suffering while cultivating the mindfulness to embody our intrinsic strength and wisdom.
