Gladdening the Mind,  Contemplating The Four Divine Abodes

4 Day Non-Residential Retreat

Wednesday, December 26-Saturday, December 29, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.

The Buddha taught that if we do not gladden the mind, liberation will not be possible.  This will be a four-day-long year-end retreat with morning instructions and guided meditation followed by alternating periods of silent sitting, walking, standing, and lying down meditation.

There will be a break for bring-your-own or go-out-nearby lunch and afternoon tea. There will be an afternoon guided meditation and we will close with a question and comment period.

This retreat is recommended if you are experienced with meditation, but have not started a multi-day residential retreat practice yet. 

There is a price break for more days; you can register for 1,2,3, or 4 days. 

This venue is not accessible for those with mobility impairments.

The CML is 2 blocks from the Red Line Tenleytown Metro stop. There is plenty of parking in the neighborhood.

IMCW retreats and workshops offer instruction in Buddhist meditation and talks on the awakening of our natural insight, love and wisdom. While the meditation practices derive from the Buddhist tradition, they are universal in orientation and address spiritual themes of concern to all contemplative traditions.

A workshop is not primarily silent (talking may be allowed during breaks and lunch) and may be focused on a special topic, such as applying meditation to relationships, emotional healing or physical well-being. Workshops may include a variety of formats, including different reflections and exercises and the sharing of experiences.

There is a price break for more days; you can register for 1, 2, 3, or 4 days.
