From: user 8.
Sent on: Tuesday, September 20, 2011 2:29 PM
Dear Friends,
We are happy to be gathering together for our weekly meditation/discussion group.  This week will be discuss Bare Attention.  Nyanaponika Thera, in his book, The Heart of Buddhist Meditation, says, "Bare Attention is the clear and single-minded awareness of what actually happens to us and in us, at the successive moments of perception". 
We will listen to a talk by Joseph Goldstein in which he eloquently describes the 4 aspects of Bare Attention in meditation practice and in daily living.
1.  single object
2.  mental noting
3.  slowing down
4.  periods of silence
We will listen to the talk for 20 minutes, discuss and practice the techniques and then, optionally, finish listening to the talk.
Registration is now open for the Mindfulness Retreat Oct 6-9.  If you cannot arrive on the 6th, but can arrive the morning of the 7th before 7 am---then you can still register for the retreat.  Space is limited.  Retreats are by donation.
