Dr. Cliff Knighten Lecture Series | Mindfulness and the Sacrament of the Present Moment
Speaker: Cliff Knighten, PhD

In the classic spiritual text, The Sacrament of the Present Moment, Jean-Pierre De Caussade argues that the present moment is sacred because it is the school of Divine Wisdom. In non-reactive and open-hearted presence to our experience, as it is happening, we encounter the the Divine Reality. Too often, however, we are either lost in thought or overwhelmed by difficult emotions. Mindfulness helps us break our over-identification with thoughts and work skillfully with overpowering emotions. Rooted in the Buddhist tradition, Mindfulness is simply the practice of coming home: coming home to what is happening underneath our thoughts and emotions, coming home to the intuitive wisdom of the body, and coming home to grounded and spacious moment-by-moment awareness.

This three-part lecture series will introduce the theory and practice of Mindfulness. Each session will include a lecture, guided meditation practice, and Q&A.
