The Path of Simply Being: A Meditation Retreat
November 15–17, 2013
Beginning the path of meditation is an ideal opportunity to embrace the wisdom of everyday experience with great patience, openness, and compassion. In this dynamic and practical retreat, we will explore how meditation practice embraces all areas of our lives with depth and wisdom. Drawing from the Buddhist insight traditions, we will learn the essential qualities of taking our meditation practice far beyond the cushion, allowing us to remain fearless amidst the day-to-day flow of our lives, inviting our hearts and minds to expand and radiate with compassion and intelligence, and ultimately opening to our true nature. No previous meditation experience is necessary.
Thomas Roberts, a Zen Buddhist and psychotherapist, has led dynamic, refreshing, and practical retreats on mind-body healing and meditation practices for over 30 years. This retreat will draw from his book The Mindfulness Book: A Beginner’s Guide to Overcoming Fear and Embracing Compassion.
