Dedicating a whole day to cultivating mindfulness is an opportunity to deepen and strengthen our practice. It is a conscious ‘setting-aside’ of our usual running around and getting things done. Through a variety of meditations, all emphasizing different anchors for our awareness, we can build our capacity to ‘be with’ and ‘respond to’ our changing inner landscape. Some of the meditations which will be included in our day include: the body scan, mindful movement, breath and body meditation, standing meditation, walking meditation, sound meditation and eating meditation. The day will be conducted in silence but there will be an opportunity at the end for reflection and sharing experiences.
