Moving Into Stillness: A Day of Sitting & Walking Meditation
When you plant seeds in the garden, you don’t dig them up every day to see if they have sprouted yet. You simply water them and clear away the weeds; you know that the seeds will grow in time. Similarly, just do your daily practice and cultivate a kind heart. Abandon impatience and instead be content creating the causes for goodness; the results will come when they’re ready. —Bhikshuni Thubten Chodron, Meditator’s Toolbox
Sunday, February 16, 2020, 9:30 AM – 4:30 PM
Please come for the entire day if at all possible; however, attending either the morning or afternoon session is fine as well. Please arrive between 12:30 PM (for lunch) – 1:30 PM (after lunch) if only attending the afternoon session.
Please join us, once a month, for a nourishing day of sitting and walking meditation in noble silence. Ideal for all levels. For beginners, this is a wonderful opportunity to taste the benefits of retreat-style practice; for more experienced practitioners, a way to enhance, broaden, and deepen their practice.
The day will begin with a short talk on questions, noble silence, meditation instructions followed by alternating periods of sitting and walking meditation, a quiet lunch (brown bag), a Dharma talk, continued meditation and time for Q&A and sharing. Please review the guidelines for daylongs on the TCMC website.
Please bring a lunch to eat. Refrigerator and microwave are available.
TCMC Fee: Sliding Scale $20–$30 for the day. No one will be turned away due to inability to pay.
