ONLINE: Four Foundations of Mindfulness — A Weeklong Retreat

with Dan Hessey
June 19 / 12:00 AM - June 25 / 12:00 AM

This week of intensive sitting meditation is centered on the Four Foundations of Mindfulness:

  • Mindfulness of Body

  • Mindfulness of Life

  • Mindfulness of Effort

  • Mindfulness of Mind

The Four Foundations of Mindfulness is a meditative framework for investigating the intimate texture of our moment-to-moment experience. It helps us develop deeper insight into egolessness and the confidence to relax our mind in vipashyana awareness.

This program is designed to meet the needs of new meditation practitioners, as well as deepen the understanding and experience of more seasoned practitioners. Participants will be guided and coached in creating a good meditative environment at home to support their practice during the week.

During the week long retreat participants will engage in:

  • Sitting and walking meditation

  • Individual meditation instructor interviews

  • Daily dharma talks

  • Daily Chants

  • Group discussions with other online participants and our in-house participants


This program can be taken as a stand-alone class OR as part of the three month study series, Unmasking the Three Lords of Materialism. If you have registered for the full three month series, you are already registered for this retreat and do not need to re-register.
