Becoming Intimate With Life: Moment-to-Moment Mindfulness

FCM 2013 Fall Retreat:
Becoming Intimate With Life: Moment-to-Moment Mindfulness

Published on Oct 30, 2013

Intimacy with life implies closeness, inseparability, familiarity and connection. The ability to be present and accountable with the moment-to-moment unfolding of our life is the result of practicing mindfulness. The lack of mindfulness in life results in a distracted and unfocused mind that experiences itself disconnected and alone.

The Buddha presented the practices of the four foundations of mindfulness as the basis for living a mindful life. During this silent four day residential retreat in Tampa, Florida in October 2013, Dharma teacher Fred Eppsteiner led students in the study of, meditation on, and practice of these four foundations, including developing realistic strategies for incorporating them in our lives. The "how" of entering life fully was explored in the Dharma talks and meditation periods, in relationship to our bodies and minds or the people and situations we encounter.
