Event description
Half Day Meditation Retreat with Howie Cohn - Calming the Restless Mind

About this Event

Everyone wants to be calm and peaceful. Much of our restlessness and agitation stems from an untrained mind and lack of clear perception of what's happening in our mind and body moment by moment. During this retreat we will train our hearts and minds to find a calm abiding in the present moment. How will we accomplish this?

We will follow the Buddha’s teachings on the Four Foundations of Mindfulness; being mindful and sensitive to our bodies, beginning with the sensations of breathing and expanding to include all other types of physical sensations. We will learn to feel pleasure more fully without trying to make it last and learn to accommodate inevitable unpleasant experiences without being afraid or reactive to them. We will develop the skill of recognizing and working with our moods and emotions and learn how to relate to our thoughts more wisely rather than be so easily carried away by them.

Suggested donation is $35-$70, though no on will be turned away for lack of funds.

Advanced registration is preferred, though we will also accept walk-ins on the day of the event.
