Cultivating a Solid Foundation with Tuere Sala
January 25 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm PST
Illuminous awareness depends upon the strength of a practitioner’s mindfulness. Buddha said that mindfulness is protection for the mind. Learning to see this natural aspect of mind is where Vipassana, commonly called insight, comes from. During this evening dharma talk, we will begin to learn how to build a solid foundation for our practice through awareness of and grounding in the body.
Tuere Sala is a co-guiding teacher at Seattle Insight Meditation Society (SIMS).
She is a retired prosecuting attorney who has practiced Vipassana meditation for over 25 years. She has been an active member and volunteer at Seattle Insight since 2001. Tuere has often supported SIMS in unconventional ways such as answering the many letters SIMS receives from practitioners in prison; offering beginning classes at Angeline Women’s shelter and Jubilee House, a women’s transitional house; and facilitating workshops using nonviolent communication (NVC) to support a mindfulness practice.
Tuere believes that urban meditation is the foundation for today’s practitioner’s path to liberation. She is inspired by bringing the Dharma to nontraditional places and is a strong advocate for practitioners living with high stress, past trauma and difficulties sitting still. Her teachings reflect an approach to Dharma that is both easy to follow and understand – making it accessible to everyone.
Cost: $5-$20 sliding scale for each event, and Dana for the teacher. Nobody turned away for inability to pay.
