Awareness is your refuge
A DAYLONG RETREAT With katherine barr
Saturday, December 9 from 9 am to 4 pm
“Awareness is your refuge: awareness of the changingness of feelings, of attitudes, of moods, of material change and emotional change. Stay with that because it’s a refuge that is indestructible; It’s not something that changes; it’s a refuge you can trust in.…. When you are mindful, you’re beginning to notice: ‘it’s like this’.” -Ajahn Sumedho
Please join us on this daylong retreat as we gently explore and cultivate the courage to be open and present. In a moment of presence, there is freedom. Away from our usual busyness and obligations, there is an invitation “to put down all you know, to set aside your story and live from what remains,” says Rabbi Rami Shapiro.
Through sitting and walking meditation, short Dharma talks and the preciousness of silence, we will have the opportunity to relax, observe and allow with beginner’s mind.
This daylong retreat is suitable for new and experienced meditation practitioners. All are welcome.
