The Buddha's classic teachings on mindfulness are captured in the Satipatthana Sutta. In it, he elucidates four pathways to bring awareness to our direct experience: through the body, vedana (feeling-tone), the mind, and the lens of wisdom teachings.

The Satipatthana is said to be the direct path to liberation; the answer to the heart's longing for freedom. The sutta itself can be seen as a description of the mind liberating itself.

Join us for a weekend exploring these essential teachings, which form the foundation of mindfulness and guide us to ultimate liberation.

Bookings close 22 June at 12pm.
