Four Foundations of Mindfulness with John Orr Return to listing


Four Foundations of Mindfulness, with John Orr

Hosted  by the Program on Integrative Medicine

There are four states of mind that support our mindfulness practice and when experienced, allow us to feel light and flexible, open and concentrated at the same time.


They are: loving kindness, compassion, joy, and equanimity.

During this series of classes together, we will open to these beautiful qualities of the heart, which are inherent to our being.


We will also explore what seems to block us from dwelling in these beautiful states of heart-mind.


It is often our fears that get in the way of our access to this loving heart.


Using mindfulness practice and guided meditations focused on loving kindness, compassion, joy and forgiveness, we will make contact with this loving heart, nurture it and manifest it in the many contexts of our daily lives.


Sessions are two hours, held once a week for four weeks focused on experiential practice and self-reflection
