Practice instructions will outline the development of three sets of four: (1). Understanding the process of the four noble truths, (2). Practicing the four foundations of mindfulness, and (3). Cultivating the four appropriate heart practices. As we practice within this framework, we learn to develop a balance of theory, application, practice and fruition. Awakening to a matrix of qualities that work together to achieve to the goal of living well and finding true happiness. No previous meditation experience is necessary. All are welcome to attend.
