Setting Things in Motion: Cultivating Kind Intentions
with Karen G. Williams and Rae Houseman
Saturday, August 31st, 2019 | 10:00am to 5:00pm
When we approach the practice of meditation and everyday life with right view, every aspect of our experience is an expression of our human nature.
Our thoughts, emotions, and mind-states are constantly in flux and come from specific causes. This doesn’t mean that we don’t take responsibility – the Buddhist concept of right view allows us to meet experience with kindness. In meeting this experience with kindness in part comes from setting clear intentions.
In this daylong we will explore the impact of our motivations and how to practice with intentions. We will take a deep dive into what it is to bring kind intentions to our practice, and therefore our lives.
This day of shared meditation will include periods of walking and sitting meditation, instruction and time for questions, and group reflection. This daylong retreat is appropriate for those with all levels of meditation experience.
