Come join us to a weekend meditation workshop on the Mindfulness of Breathing (ānāpānasati). The Buddha praised the method (Majjhima Nikaya Sutta No. 118): Ānāpānassati, bhikkhave, bhāvitā bahulīkatā mahapphalā hoti mahānisasā. Ānāpānassati, bhikkhave, bhāvitā bahulīkatā cattāro satipahāne paripūreti.” Mindfulness of breathing, O, monks, when established and well practiced, is of great fruit and great benefit. Mindfulness of breathing, when established and well practiced, fulfills the four foundations of mindfulness.
