Invited Speaker Series - "Mindfulness of Breathing (Anapanasati)" - Tempel Smith

Note: Sunday Programs are open for both in-person and Zoom attendees. In-person attendees are welcome to arrive at 5:30pm to socialize outside of the meditation center until the program begins at 6pm. Before attending in-person, read the full protocol here.

The Buddha taught mindfulness of breathing (anapanasati) as a central meditation practice to help anyone wishing greater contentment and well being. Beyond the initial benefits of calming stress and cultivating ease, the practice of mindfulness of breathing may continue to develop as deeper self regulation and understanding. Put in the greater context of the Buddha’s path to liberation, increasing self understanding and regulation allow us to transform our habits of suffering.

Tempel Smith teaches mindfulness, insight and metta meditation with an emphasis on Buddhist psychology and mind-body awareness. He spent a year as a monk in Myanmar with Ven. Sayadaw U Pandita and Ven. Pa Auk Sayadaw, and now organizes the Dedicate Practitioner Program (DPP) for Spirit Rock Meditation Center.
