The mindfulness revolution is sweeping the globe, and countless studies tout its benefits. But what exactly is mindfulness, and what are its strengths and limitations? In this program we will examine the origins of mindfulness and how to practice it. We will then explore the many meditations that transcend mindfulness, including analytic, metta, integral, somatic, tonglen, open awareness, “emergency meditations”, and nocturnal meditations. Each meditation is practical and immediately applicable.

We will explore some of the obstacles to meditation, including spiritual bypassing, escapism, spiritual materialism, and McMindfulness. This class will also examine a host of related topics: what is the role of the body on the meditative path, and does therapy have a place? Can meditation help with political upheaval, social unrest, and the ecological crises?

With talks, discussion, and extensive engagement in the actual practices, this program will introduce you to the vast array of post-mindfulness meditations and the many ways to explore the wonders of the mind. Given these tools, every life circumstance—no matter how difficult—can be brought to the meditative path.
