Day of Mindfulness: Embodied Mindfulness
with Shinzen Young 

In this workshop, Shinzen will introduce you to three dimensions of working with body experience: how to appreciate the body sensorially just as it is, how to transcend the body, and how to improve the body.

We will incorporate sitting meditation as well as walking meditation, lecture, discussion and other experiential practices.

This daylong is suitable for new and experienced practitioners.
