Description

Opening to Joy - An Afternoon Retreat

Taught by Daryl Lynn Ross, Guiding Teacher, True North Insight Meditation

Joy is a natural quality of heart which can well up spontaeously, and which we can also open to and even cultivate. Joy also arises from living our meditation practice: mindfulness, wisdom, kindness, ethical choices, generosity, gratitude, renunciation and forgiveness all lay the groundwork for joy growing more present in our lives. We will explore all of these aspects of opening to joy during this afternoon retreat.

The afternoon will include meditation instruction, sitting and walking meditation, a guided practice, a talk and discussion in a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

Everyone is welcome: beginners and more experienced practitioners. Space is limited! This event will be limited to 32 participants.

The teachings and instructions will be given in English. Questions and comments in French are welcome.
