ZOOM RETREAT THIS WEEKEND WITH BRIAN LESAGE
Due to the large amount of snow we just received here we are unable to hold the retreat this weekend at MeadowRock Ranch. There is no way for us to get all of our gear in there and nowhere to park or to do walking meditation. So if you did not register for the retreat and now wish to attend we can accept a few more people. If you wish to get the Zoom link please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send the link to you as soon as it is available. The link will automatically be sent to everyone who is already registered.
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.
