This is talk 5 of 13 talks and led meditations given on the Path to Insight Retreat at Taraloka, July 2019. This retreat was offered to women who are training for Ordination and Order Members. The talks are available to all.
In this session, Prasadavati encourages us to develop a seamless flow of mindfulness in the whole of life, by befriending sati. She recaps on the importance of breathing as a process, and then leads a meditation that broadens body awareness out to all the senses. She also states the importance of taking awareness into walking and other postures as we get to know our direct experience. An introduction to the crucial pair of "experiencing" things directly and "knowing" that, is given.
