OPEN MINDFULNESS FUNDAMENTAL TRAINING
An eight day intensive retreat-seminar led by Denys Rinpoche
October 18, 10:00am to October 25, 3:00pm, at Kagyu Thubten Chöling Monastery
Open Mindfulness Fundamental Training (OMFT) is a contemporary secular practice developed by Denys Rinpoche, a lineage heir of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition.
The purpose of the retreat is to cultivate the experience of mindfulness and integrate it in daily life. The program will alternate periods of instruction with Q&A, meditation and body exercises. The aim is to learn to work mindfully with thoughts and emotions, to improve relationships and communication, and to strengthen ethical and global spirituality.
Mindfulness is the key to both authentic happiness and skillful action in the present moment. Mindfulness not only reduces stress; it is also the basis for insight and the direct experience of the nature of one’s mind.
The mindfulness training is an eight day retreat with a specific program each day. Full participation is strongly encouraged. If you cannot attend the full retreat, you may attend the first weekend only.
Program: 1st day 10a-5pm, other days: 9a-5p except final day: 9a-3p with session breaks and 2 hour lunch break.
