with Jason Murphy, 5-12 November, 2016. This retreat will be an opportunity to deepen into the practices of mindfulness, concentration and compassion. These age-old techniques will be offered in a practical and pragmatic form designed to help the participants gain insight into the nature of this mind/body experience as well as develop a kind-hearted approach to the struggles of life. Each day will include gentle guided instruction, silent reflection, walking and eating meditation, and mindful movement (Qi Gong). Each evening will feature a dharma talk (teaching of the Buddha) and specific instruction in developing open-heartedness.
