Mindfulness Hamilton Presents: Surfing the Waves of Life

A one day workshop with Shinzen Young Saturday May 4 2019 


Using the techniques of “See, Hear, Feel” that Shinzen has developed fosters our appreciation of self and world.  With practice, this will allow you to experience whatever comes up with radical fullness. As your sensory experience becomes fuller, discomfort will cause less suffering, pleasure will deliver more fulfillment, you’ll understand who you are at deeper and deeper levels, you’ll find it easier to make positive behavior changes for yourself, and find delight in serving others.

This workshop will include didactic material and meditation practice and instruction. It is interactive, with question and answers.

It is suitable for all, from those who are new to mindfulness through to experienced meditators.

 Shinzen Young is an American mindfulness teacher and neuroscience research consultant. His systematic approach to categorizing, adapting, and teaching meditation known as Unified Mindfulness, has resulted in collaboration with Harvard Medical School and Carnegie-Mellon and Vermont Universities in the bourgeoning field of contemplative neuroscience. He is author of The Science of Enlightenment, Natural Pain Relief, and numerous audio and  video offerings.

As thousands of his students and listeners will confirm, Shinzen is like no other teacher you’ve ever encountered. He merges scientific clarity, a rare grasp of source-language teachings East and West, and a gift for sparking insight through unexpected analogies, illustrations, humor, and firsthand accounts that reveal the inner journey to be as wondrous as any geographical expedition.

Shinzen likes to say of himself: I’m a Jewish-American Buddhist teacher who got turned on to comparative mysticism by an Irish-Catholic priest and who has developed a Burmese-Japanese fusion practice inspired by the spirit of quantified science.
