The Buddha's teachings on simplicity provide an essential component for living a life of contentment and freedom. This retreat is designed to explore the many aspects of this teaching through the practice of continuous mindfulness meditation in silence throughout the day—in sitting and walking meditation. There will also be time for discussion to support this process happening in the silence. In the silence, we can begin to move toward meeting life in a more simple and authentic way. This retreat is designed for both beginners and experienced practitioners.
Brian Lesage has practiced Buddhist meditation since 1988 and has taught meditation since 2000. He has studied in the Zen, Theravada and Tibetan schools of Buddhism. He was ordained in the Rinzai Zen tradition in 1996.
