A Five-Day Residential Retreat
Entering the New Year
With Love & Wisdom
Erin Treat, Brian Lesage & Sheryl McGourty
December 28, 2016 – January 1, 2017
INSIGHT MEDITATION offers a meaningful way to usher in the New Year. This silent retreat will focus upon cultivating presence and awareness that embraces the moments of our lives with acceptance and wisdom.
JOIN US to practice the timeless teachings of the Buddha as a pathway to discover peace, freedom and the compassionate heart. As we deepen our capacity to pay wise and kind attention to our embodied experience, we will come to know what it means to awaken in the midst of our life, to be deeply connected to our experience but not bound by it. Insight meditation practice will be supported by daily meditation instruction, dharma talks and individual meetings with Erin and Brian. Daily mindful movement sessions designed for all bodies will be led by Sheryl. The retreat also will provide an opportunity to clarify our deepest and most heartfelt intentions.
Check-in is 3-5 p.m. on 12/28/2016. Retreat ends following lunch on 1/12017.
Registration fees go to support the Durango Dharma Center and cover costs of presenting the retreat. This retreat is offered by the teachers on the basis of dana, a practice of mutual generosity that has been alive since the time of the Buddha. Those who offer the teachings and movement experiences rely on the generosity and donations of retreat participants for sustainable income to support their valuable work in this world. At the end of the retreat, there will be an opportunity to make donations to the teachers.
