Mindfulness Dharma Talk


Mindfulness meditation is the art being with what is happening -
just as it is. The Buddha described this practice as: “going against
the stream” a radical shift in perspective, not following our habits
and reactions, but simply learning to be with.
Join Kat Boehm for an exploratory discussion that will tease apart
these ancient teachings and how to integrate mindfulness in our
modern world. We will explore mindfulness meditation techniques,
philosophy, and how to bring mindful awareness into our daily life.
When we develop a willingness to be curious and open to what is
happening, there a possibility of deep understanding and self-
compassion.

Bio:

Kat Boehm’s exploration of Yoga started in 1996, with her first class at a local fitness facility. Excited and fascinated with this new approach, she continued to expand her practice in her teacher’s basement. Her interest was piqued, realizing the depth these systematic teachings offer and went to India for her 1st teacher training in 2000. She has enthusiastically broadened her knowledge of movement, anatomy and Yoga through numerous trainings, workshops and certifications. Kat firmly believes that the body is meant to move. Moving the body regularly with supportive, functional alignment as well as varied exercises will cultivate a state of confidence and create health and well-being at any stage of life.

 

While in India, Kat discovered and began sitting silent retreats. She has spent time in India, Burma and the United States on extended silent retreats with renowned teachers in different Buddhist lineages. Kat constantly evolves and deepens her practice of mindfulness meditation through study, retreats and the continual support of her teachers and community of practitioners. The practice of meditation is a gradual process towards the mind’s natural state of clarity and ease. It is a practice that requires care and curiousity, developing a compassionate understanding of our human life and the possibility to live with awareness and contentment.

 

Kat rides her bike, eats dark chocolate, spends time with her husband, cat, friends, as well as in nature to enjoy the simple yet delightful aspects of daily life!
