After a review of foundational, intermediate and advanced daily life practices, we focus on several central practices, working with intention, using the imagination, grounding in the body and taking difficulties as practice.
Our core practice of mindfulness is based on Mahasi Sayadaw's technique of noting, starting with the breath and moving to all aspects of experiences. How did we receive this practice? We explore the fascinating history from the Buddha through the 19th and 20th Burma, to the West, where these techniques of mindfulness are influential in many settings.
