Description:
This day of silent insight meditation is an invitation to strengthen in ourselves the noble qualities of mindfulness and friendliness. Cultivating a relaxed, kind, and curious attention to our moment-to-moment experience, we can recover our natural peace, clarity, wisdom, and compassion. This capacity to pay attention in the present moment enables us to connect with ourselves more intimately and directly, understand the causes of both suffering and happiness, and discover our natural freedom and ease. Instructions for both sitting and walking meditation will be offered, along with time for questions.

All levels of experience welcome!

Health care professionals will be able to incorporate the tools and practices offered in this program in ways beneficial to clients or patients.
