Session Description:

Sati: The Practice of Mindful Awareness 

We will explore the potency of embodied awareness: ‘bodyfulness’ as a reframing of the four foundations of Mindfulness (Satipathana) as presented by early buddhism. We will practice Sati in combination with contemporary practices influenced by embodied cognition and somatics. The sessions start with guided mindfulness practice, silence and unfolds to a council/dialogue practice.
