Entering The New Year with Love & Wisdom
with Erin Treat and Brian Lesage
Tuesday, December 29, 2015 – Saturday, January 2, 2016
INSIGHT MEDITATION offers a meaningful way to usher in the New Year. This five-day silent retreat will focus upon cultivating presence and awareness that embrace the moments of our lives with acceptance and wisdom.
Join us to practice the timeless teachings of the Buddha as a pathway to discover peace, freedom and the compassionate heart. As we deepen our capacity to pay wise and kind attention to our embodied experience, we will come to know what it means to awaken in the midst of our life, to be connected deeply to our experience yet not bound by it. The retreat also will provide an opportunity to clarify our deepest and most heartfelt intentions.
Insight meditation practice will be supported by daily meditation instruction, dharma talks and meetings with teachers.
