A wellspring of joy arises when we realize the scope of the Buddha's teachings and their impact on our relationships and activities. This silent retreat, open to all, is an invitation to explore the core teaching of mindfulness and how it supports the cultivation of wisdom and compassion. With practice, we come to interact with our world with an ease of mind and understanding, especially amidst the fullness and vibrancy of everyday life.
The course format will include meditation instruction and guidance, silent sitting and walking meditation periods, as well as talks about the Buddha’s teachings and meetings with the teachers. Optional sessions of mindful movement will be offered by Sabra Saperstein.
This retreat is full with a short waitlist. To be added to the list, submit a registration and deposit.
