Online: Resourcing, Resiliency and Inquiry
with Amma Thanasanti
Saturday, July 25th, 2020 | 2:00pm – 5:00pm ET

The Buddha taught the first foundation of mindfulness – awareness of body and breath – as a cornerstone to enlightenment. Learning to relax and bring attention to the body allows for stillness and renewal. When awareness suffuses the body, we can see it as ever present. As attention shifts and rests in awareness, it supports letting go. This is resourcing. Our resourcing supports our resiliency with all that is going on. Our ability to meet the challenges together is critical for all we are navigating as a global society.

We will begin this online retreat with body centered practices, open our focus to rest in awareness itself. Then, self selected affinity groups will have some time to engage in discussion around what matters most.

Amma Thanasanti

Amma Thanasanti first encountered the Dharma in 1979. As a former Buddhist nun of 26 years, she combines the precision and rigor of Ajahn Chah Forest Tradition, compassion, pure awareness practices and a passion for wholeness. Amma is in touch with the natural world and uses nature in her teaching. Amma has been teaching intensive meditation retreats in North America, Europe, Australia and Asia since 1995.

Amma’s teaching style emphasizes deep listening, authenticity, inquiry, fierce compassion, warmth, humor and an unwavering commitment to presence. She feels a special calling to do her own work so that students from diverse communities feel supported and belonging; where the community members are able to connect across differences of culture, race, gender, sexuality and ability. She invites an openness to pause and inquire into the truth of the present moment, integrating adaptive skillful means and rooted traditional approaches.
