Freedom Through Seeing the Selfless Nature of Experience
A 2-day Nonresidential Silent Vipassana Meditation Retreat
February 18-19, 2023
The Buddha’s teachings on Selflessness (Anatta) are some of the most profound and essential aspects of this path towards our freedom and awakening. This retreat will explore the many aspects of this teaching through the practice of continuous mindfulness meditation in silence throughout the day—in sitting and walking meditation. In the silence we can begin to move toward unpacking the delusion of a separate self which allows compassion and wisdom to arise in our lives. Experiential meditative approaches will be offered throughout the retreat and will be supported by optional discussion times. This retreat is designed for beginners and experienced practitioners.
This retreat is full but if you wish to sign up for the wait list, please email email@example.com.
Individual Use Of The Sangha House
The SIMC board has attempted to find a way to have the house unlocked during the day. But we have not been able to find a workable solution. However we really would like to encourage use of the house by anyone wishing some quiet time to meditate or read! If you wish to obtain the code for the entry door, please contact Paul Vosburgh at 505-350-0338.
Please join us for group meditation on Sundays from 5-6 pm. And Tuesdays at noon. The Tuesday sit can be joined by Zoom using this link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/4871693695
