Day of Mindfulness Meditation: Spiritual Friendship
with Bart van Melik and Rosemary Blake
Sunday, September 29th, 2019 | 10:00am – 5:00pm
The Buddha often emphasized the importance of friends and said that friendship is a prerequisite for awakening. On this day of silence we’ll reflect on this ancient teaching and investigate how friendship can support us in cultivating a kind heart in this challenging world.
This retreat day will include sitting, walking, and select inspirational readings for contemplation. Individual interviews with the teachers 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.
Meditation practitioners of all levels are welcome.
