This is an opportunity to cultivate mindfulness and explore our spiritual path through meditation and the teachings of the Buddha while honoring our shared experience in community. Taking time away from our busy lives and our endless duties and responsibilities, to reflect on one's heart and mind creates space for healing and can be a powerful support for deepening insight. A quiet, serene mind is capable of seeing clearly in a way that is often not available in a world full of constant distractions. Clear seeing or insight uproots the confusion behind the cycles of stress and suffering. The primary retreat container will be the practice of noble silence with a simple schedule of sitting meditation, walking meditation, Dharma talk and mindful movement.
Those who are new to meditation are encouraged to attend the POC community group, the introduction to meditation class, or one of the weekly practice groups before their first retreat.
Led by Stacy McClendon and Meski Mebatsion.
The Practitioners of Color community group meets the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month, 6:30 – 8:00 p.m.
