Cultivating the Quality of Patience

Larissa Kitenko St. Peter's Episcopal Church

Larissa Kitenko

3/7/2020 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM  at  St. Peter's Episcopal Church (211 Mulberry Street, Lewes, DE, 19958) (Map It)

Over the course of the day, we will explore facets of the Paramis of patience and how to put the Buddha’s path to happiness into practice. The Paramis (Perfections) are considered the essential elements of the path to awakening and are closely identified with the bodhisattva path (the path to Buddhahood or Nirvana).

This day of practice will include direction in mindfulness of the breath, body, emotions and thoughts. It is an opportunity to learn a meditation technique -- insight meditation -- which has continued as a living practice for 2,600 years and can bring about tranquility, mental clarity and the ability to cope better with life’s challenges.

This is a daylong silent meditation retreat suitable for both beginning and experienced meditation students. It includes guided meditation periods, silent sitting and walking meditation, and a Dharma (teaching) talk with time for questions.

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.

Registration

This daylong is offered freely. Registration is required. There will be an opportunity to offer dana (a donation) at the daylong.

Lunch will be provided.
