Larissa Kitenko

4/13/2019 9:00 AM  -  12:30 PM  at  Third Haven Friends Meeting House (Eastern Shore) (405 S. Washington St., Easton, MD, 21601) (Map It)

This half-day of practice will include direction in mindfulness of the breath, body sensations and thoughts. It is an opportunity to deepen one’s practice or to begin insight meditation which has continued as a living practice for 2600 years. Mindfulness meditation can bring about tranquility, mental clarity and the ability to reduce stress. Through this practice, it is possible to relate to life’s challenges in such a way that they do not define you. Consequently, a new relationship with them will unfold that will bring you increased meaning, joy and freedom in your life just as it is. For those new to meditation, this retreat also demonstrates the benefits of meditating as a group.

Suitable for both beginning and experienced meditation students, this silent meditation retreat includes guided meditation periods, silent sitting and walking meditation, 
dharma talk, and question-and-response session.

Bring cushions & pillows, chairs will be available.  

This venue is not 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.

This event is offered freely. You will have an opportunity to offer dana (a donation) to support the venue and teacher.

Fees:

Dana (donation):$0.00
