Ehipassiko — Come and See for Yourself
Conscious Living : Conscious Working
George Pitagorsky, Michael Daner
January 18, 2014
10:00 am - 05:00 pm
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.
Learn more about the Conscious Living: Conscious Working Extended Mindfulness Program, a five-month course on the integration of Buddhist practice into daily life.
