Stockholm Shambhala Meditation Group
Shambhala Stockholm presents
Exploring the Four Foundations
with Dorothea Gädeke
and Alex Paterson
23-25 of April
The teachings and practices of the Four Foundations of Mindfulness are among the oldest Buddhist teachings transmitted to us. The teachings and practices are so basically basic that they apply to any human, beyond any religion.
Interestingly, each era has its own view and interpretation; nowadays, the term Mindfulness is often used in an inflationary and commercial way. In this retreat we will explore and take a fresh look on Chögyam Trungpa`s practices and teachings on Mindfulness of body, life, effort, mind and how they connect to basic Shambhala teachings. We will explore concepts and practices that deepen our understanding of the mind/body connection and highlight ways that the body is a direct portal to presence.
Meditation instruction, sitting and walking meditation, contemplation practice, talks, movement practice, Shamatha Yoga, exchange in small groups, and time for playfulness and pauses
We will meet on Zoom
The program is designed to mix periods of focused meditation and movement practices with everyday life. Participants can join for the entire time, or for one full day.
Anyone is welcome - longtime meditators as well as those with no experience of meditation. No pre-requisites!

These days she is interested in exploring how Dharma can be timely and appropriate beyond hierarchy. She works as an actress, voice coach and voice therapist. She has a longtime and long-distance love affair with the Scandinavian sangha.
