The Alchemy of Mindfulness

DATE: February 4
TEACHER: Avi Craimer
THEME: The Alchemy of Mindfulness
MEDITATION: Analytic Investigation
INTERACTIVE: Reconciliation of Opposites

Avi: Alchemy is the separation of the chaotic and unconscious psychic matter, into clearly known opposing principles. Then in a further stage, the alchemist works to reconcile these opposites into a new harmoniously integrated whole. This week we’ll explore the alchemical dimensions of mindfulness practice. In the sit we’ll work on analysing the components of sensory experience. Then in the interactive practice, we’ll combine structured artistic expression with mindfulness to begin to integrate contrasting sensations.
