Recollective Awareness Meditation Workshop

Primary tabs

Please join us for a special workshop by visiting teacher Jason Siff, who will be teaching his Recollective Awareness Meditation method at PIMC, Saturday, May 12, 9:00am-5:00pm.

Have you ever wondered what it would like to meditate with greater awareness of thoughts and emotions? Jason will be teaching ways to become more open and aware of your mind in meditation during his day-long workshop at PIMC.

He teaches a method of meditation that he created, deepened, and expanded upon, known as Recollective Awareness Meditation. It is the only mindfulness of thinking method that is both based on the subjective experiences of meditators and grounded in Early Buddhist teachings.

Jason Siff was a Buddhist monk in Sri Lanka in the late 1980s, when he first began teaching mindfulness and then developed his own approach to meditation called, “Recollective Awareness.” He has written “Unlearning Meditation” and “Thoughts Are Not the Enemy,” both published by Shambhala.

Since 1990, he has taught many meditation retreats and workshops, in the US and abroad, and has worked with hundreds of meditation students, listening closely to their reports and reading their meditation journals.
