Summer Half Dathün: Week 1
Acharya Michael Greenleaf
July 6–14, 2019
A half-dathün is two weeks of intensive group meditation retreat for new and experienced meditators interested in deepening their mindfulness-awareness. Doing this practice transforms how we relate to ourselves and everyday life by allowing us to get to know our mind and patterns. In this immersive experience, mindfulness practice goes beyond the meditation hall, with every aspect of daily life becoming a practice of wakefulness and an opportunity to make better friends with ourselves and our world. Practices include: sitting meditation, walking meditation, daily chants, silence, contemplative silent meals, and light chores supporting the retreat.
Acharya Greenleaf began his dharma practice as a teenager in 1974. In 2005, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche appointed Michael as an Acharya or Senior Teacher in the Shambhala lineage. He is a CPA and holds a MBA from New York University. His work focus is nonprofit marketing and development.
Financial aid is available for this program.
