Mindfulness of the Four Elements: Reconnecting with the World 

with Sebene Selassie

Starting on Sunday, March 1, Sebene will lead a series of four guided meditation videos from the New York Insight Meditation Center in Manhattan. New videos will be posted every Sunday. 

In her series, Sebene draws from the Buddha’s instructions for  contemplating the four elements—earth, fire, water, and air—as a foundation of mindfulness practice. Sebene shows how this oft-overlooked practice from the Satipatthana Sutta uses the elements as metaphors for how we experience ourselves and the world, and to help us see our inherent connection to nature. She also offers pointers and exercises for bringing the mindfulness cultivated on the cushion into your daily life. 

The schedule is:

You can also tune into Sebene’s live call on Wednesday, March 11 at 12:00 p.m. (EST) to ask her any questions you have about your practice here.
