At Home in the Muddy Water - Spring Daylong

Trisha Stotler Emmaus United Church of Christ

Trisha Stotler

3/23/2019 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM  at  Emmaus United Church of Christ (900 Maple Avenue East, Vienna, VA, 22180) (Map It)

The theme for this daylong silent retreat is an invitation to let go – of striving, doing, achieving, looking good, pleasing others, changing the world… We’ll take a big exhale together, and learn what it means to rest in the ever-flowing river of life, just “as it is.”  This is an ideal event for both beginner and long-time meditators. The day will be structured around sitting and walking meditation practice (with guidance for beginners) as well as short dharma talks and opportunities for mindful eating.

Chairs are provided, and you may bring a cushion or bench for sitting if you wish (carpeted floor). Hot tea, water and snacks will be provided, but please bring your own main lunch item.

This venue is accessible for those with mobility impairments.

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.

The base offering covers direct expenses for this event, including support for the teacher. Your payment at the two higher levels includes a tax-deductible donation to the Insight Meditation Community of Washington (IMCW).

Scholarships: Scholarships are available. To apply, please click the "Contact Us" button below before registering. You can also direct a donation to the scholarship fund on the registration form. Please apply early as funds are limited.

If you contact the retreat manager by clicking the "Contact Us" button below three weeks before the event, the balance of your registration will be refunded. Issuing a refund check may take 2-4 weeks. If you cancel less than three weeks before your retreat begins, your full payment is forfeited. Please note that donations cannot be refunded (IRS regulations).
