That we are embodied beings is all too often forgotten as we get lost in the labyrinths of emotion and thought. As a corrective to this, the Buddha emphasised as both the ground and foundation of all our practices, the fundamental fact of our embodiment. Mindfulness thus begins with awareness of the body and our embodiment.
During this weekend we will concentrate on practices that explore the embodied nature of our existence.
