The Mindfulness Meditation Program
An 8-Week Foundational Course with Rolf Gates
"Our postures become the embodiment of the exquisite balance between holding on and letting go, action and nonfiction, ambition and restraint. What is required to achieve that balance is a commitment to humility, a commitment to the truth."
- Meditations from the Mat: Daily Reflections on the Path of Yoga, Rolf Gates
This program offers you a chance to both develop a meditation practice while learning the Buddhist teachings that are the underpinning of this profound practice. Over the course of 8 weeks, you will work one-on-one with me in weekly online sessions. Each stage of this process combines the study of the core teachings with the practices that allow us to experience them.
These stages are as follows:
The Four Noble Truths (The basics and the science)
The four foundations of mindfulness (How to build a practice)
The Eight-Fold Path (Bringing Mindfulness into everyday life)
Stage Four: (optional)*
Learning to teach others meditation
*This course requires an additional six weeks and is an additional cost.
The foundational 8-week course includes weekly one-on-one sessions, weekly Asana and Meditation classes, and one daylong silent retreat (facilitated and supported by Rolf Gates but held in your home). All materials and texts are included in the cost of the program.
Materials Included in the Course:
Mindfulness Meditation Texts (included in the cost of the program)
