Many Forms of Mindfulness: Indelible Presence Meditation Retreat

By Acharya Dale Asrael and Cynthia Moku

Touching the Moment:  Indelible Presence meditation retreat begins soon–May 15–19.  We practice mindfulness in many forms throughout the day:  sitting meditation, outdoor walking meditation in the heart of nature, hatha yoga, periods of silence, and contemplative brush practice.  The images below are from our outdoor brushwork, led by master teacher Cynthia Moku.

Snow was coming, so paper was laid down before nightfall. The next day we did brush practice on the paper buried beneath this snow cover. ©cmoku/IP
