Full Presence Mindfulness
About This Event
Saturdays, 9-10:30 am
Ratna Ling invites you to embark upon a deep and profound journey into Full Presence Mindfulness, a practice that asks how we can bring about meaningful change in our lives by coming to know our own minds better. Based on the works of Tibetan teacher Tarthang Tulku, Ratna Ling’s founder, Full Presence Mindfulness inspires us to surpass our self-created limits.
The mindfulness movement has popularized a healthier way of relating to thoughts and emotions. It offers benefits such as reduced stress, an increased capacity to deal with difficulties, and penetrating insights into how we shut down our possibilities when we put the self at the center of experience.
FPM is secular and highly experiential. It opens every dimension of our experience —sensations, emotions, thoughts, and how we connect with others. This six week course uses breathing and sensory exercises for grounding, then looks at how we shape our world through the stories we tell and live. Follow-up courses will explore how we can use these teachings to act on our highest values and promote real and lasting change.
