YIN YOGA & THE FOUR FOUNDATIONS OF MINDFULNESS

with Whit Hornsberger

The practice of insight (vipassana) meditation is built upon the teachings of the Buddhist discourse, the MahāSatipatthāna Sutta or The Four Foundations of Mindfulness. The Foundations of Mindfulness form the bedrock of mindfulness meditation practice and are considered the domain of the meditator. Once established through ardent application, The Four Foundations of Mindfulness give rise to transformative experiential insights into ultimate reality, liberating the individual from the fetters of physical and mental suffering.

 

Our weekend of insight will encompass discussion on Buddhist theory, exploring and integrating in detail The Four Foundations of Mindfulnessand vipassana meditation with the practice of Yin Yoga. Each of our sessions will include discourse and application of one of the foundations of mindfulness to our meditation and Yin posture practice, building systematically and progressively throughout the weekend. Through direct felt experience each practitioner will bare witness to insights capable of radically shifting how we engage with the mind, body and life itself.

 

Whit Hornsberger is a student and teacher of the wisdom traditions of Classical Yoga, Vinyasa Krama (Krishnamacharya) and Theravada Buddhism (Mahasi Sayadaw – Burma).
