Mukpo Institute: Fall Semester 9/9/15 - 12/1/15
Mukpo Institute students conduct a three-month investigation into the principles of Hinayana and Mahayana Buddhism. Students study and practice the fundamental meditation techniques of shamatha and vipashyana. Understanding and practice of these techniques is supplemented by studies of Buddhist philosophy of mind and consciousness. There are also opportunities for students to witness and practice traditional contemplative arts. The heart of the Mukpo Institute semester is a month-long mindfulness retreat called dathün. During dathün, students apply mindfulness to all activities in addition to scheduled walking and sitting meditation sessions. Meals are taken in traditional Japanese monastic style; silence or mindful speech is observed; also mind-body disciplines are practiced.
