We're a group of people practicing Full Presence Mindfulness together. Full Presence Mindfulness is about opening up a new world view--a new vision of what it means to be alive. Instead of seeking out new experiences, we're learning to experience differently.
Full Presence Mindfulness (aka FPM) is an approach to mindfulness that examines the underlying structures of experience with a non-dual understanding. It can be practiced in every moment. By exploring what is going on in each moment — starting with breathing, hearing, and seeing — we can open into a world without self-imposed boundaries or limitations.
FPM grows out of teachings developed for the modern world by Tibetan lama Tarthang Tulku. In 1977, he presented a new vision of reality, known as the Time Space Knowledge Vision, which is secular and highly experiential. As he wrote, its goal was “the liberation of the modern mind.”
Our gatherings range from casual social gatherings and open sits, to formal 8-week classes; intensive week-long retreats; and advanced modules and teacher trainings. We also integrate our mindfulness practice with other areas of interests, including mindful poetry workshops, photo displays, yoga practice, and outdoor activities. The beauty of Full Presence Mindfulness is that it can be combined with any activity, because every moment offers a chance to be fully present.
Who should join? Anyone who is curious to explore their own mind and experience with a close-knit group of fellow knowledge-seekers!
