Ehipassiko — Come and See for Yourself

Events

Day of Silence
Rosemary Blake, Sandra Weinberg
Fee by donation; no pre-registration necessary

October 15, 2016
10:00 am - 05:00 pm

“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 essentially a period of extended inward reflection, allowing you to achieve a greater clarity of mind.

The retreat day will be one of noble silence for those who want to deepen their practice. It will include sitting, walking, and select inspirational readings for contemplation. Individual interviews will be available. It is suggested that participants bring their lunch to maintain the meditative atmosphere and concentration.

Fee by donation: Suggested starting donation is $50 but whatever you offer is greatly appreciated and no one is ever turned away for lack of funds.  For this event  all donations are split evenly between the teacher(s) and NYI.

rosemary 2

Rosemary Blake Rosemary has been a meditator for more than 30 years. She was introduced to the dharma in 2003 at the first Insight Meditation Society POC retreat, an event she attended annually for the next ten years. Her experience in 2013 of IMS’ three-month retreat both deepened her practice and created a commitment to attend a month-long vipassana meditation retreat every year. She completed Larry Yang’s two year Commit2Dharma study program and began teaching insight meditation at New York Insight after her graduation from Spirit Rock’s fourth Community Dharma Leaders Program. In addition, she recently completed her tenure as President of the Board at Insight Meditation Society in Barre, MA. Rosemary is grateful for all that this practice provides.
