Conscious Living | Conscious Working: Daylong


The dialogue and exercises during this day are designed to help you integrate conscious-awareness into your lives to help manage your stress and enable you to reach for unconditional happiness.  It is also part of a 5-month long Extended Mindfulness Course, learn more here. Students can register for the daylong separately or register for the course.

Conscious living is treating every moment of every day as a meditation; it is cultivating wisdom through mindfulness. Mindfulness gives rise to awareness, and awareness allows our innate wisdom to flower. Wisdom brings forth compassion. This retreat is an intensive exploration of meditation in daily life. Participants learn and practice several specific meditation techniques intertwined with the key Buddhist teachings that give both a practical and philosophical foundation for the techniques. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss their experience, ask questions, and address issues regarding the integration of meditation and Buddhist thought into daily work, family, and social life.

*teacher support/dana is included in the registration fee
All scholarships have been awarded for this daylong.
