Come join us in mutual support for a time of silence. We will gather from 9am until noon in Room 19 for a time that includes silent sitting meditation, walking meditation, and perhaps a few other practices. If you are new to meditation, a 3-hour block of practice can be challenging. If you are a beginner, have questions about whether this would be appropriate for you, or would like to get some quick-start instructions, please contact Carolyn Heineman (375-0686) to arrange a time to talk.
There is no fee for these retreats, and no pre-registration is required.
What to bring:
(1) your own meditation cushion if you wish; there are a few available to borrow in the space;
(2) a folded blanket (or two) can serve as an alternative meditation cushion;
(3) a yoga mat or other item to lie down on in the event we do a lying-down practice; there are about 7 mats available in the space;
(4) wear layered clothing during cool weather, and bring a jacket, as your walking meditation can be done outside if you wish.
Straight-back chairs and back-jacks are available in the space.
