Mindful, natural breathing brings us to a grounded space in the center of our bodies. This grounding is excellent for observing life with peacefulness, stability, and clarity. By reflecting on the nature of the breath, we can expand our awareness to encompass everything else. This retreat will explore the qualities of awareness centered in our bodies, on the breath, and on non-judgmentally opening to the space around us. Guided meditations, practice, discussions, noble silence, and plenty of time for meditation will support exploration and growth in these practices.
Santikaro is the founder of Liberation Park, a Buddhist retreat center in Wisconsin. There he teaches Buddhism and meditation with an emphasis on the early Pali sources. He was a Buddhist monk for 19 years and a disciple of the renowned Thai meditation master Buddhadasa Bhikkhu.
