Day of Mindfulness Meditation
with Rosemary Blake and Bart van Melik
Sunday, September 29th, 2019 | 10:00am – 5:00pm
“Your worst enemy cannot harm you as much as your own unguarded thoughts.” –The Buddha
In modern society we are surrounded by noise – traffic noise, endless emails and phone calls, the chatter of people, and so forth. A silent retreat day is a period of extended inward reflection allowing you to achieve a greater clarity of mind. You will be guided into meditation at several sessions throughout the day. We will also explore how to bring this practice into our daily lives through teacher-led talks. Through sitting and the sharing of Dharma wisdom, we will explore what it means to practice both on and off the cushion.
This retreat day will include sitting, walking, and select inspirational readings for contemplation. Individual interviews will be available. It is suggested that participants bring their lunch and practice mindful eating to maintain the meditative atmosphere and concentration as well as to look quietly at how we can bring meditation into many of our daily acts such as eating, commuting, doing the dishes and so on.
