Event description

Description

Deepening Our Practice

This daylong retreat will feature alternating periods of sitting and walking meditation, instruction in mindfulness practice, and a Dharma talk. The format of the day will be different than our usual model. Rather than several dharma teachings on a particular theme, the focus is on individual sustained practice in the comfort of silence. The day will be one of individual practice guided by peer-led meditations.

You will be on your own for a day of sitting and walking meditations. This will be rare opportunity to be in community with others and to open up to the possibility of insight.

THIS REGISTRATION DOES NOT INCLUDE A TEACHER INTERVIEW. IF YOU WOULD LIKE AN INTERVIEW PLEASE GO TO THE ORGANIZER WEBSITE FOR THAT LINK.
