Description

Waking Up in Our Lives: Living Meditation

Taught by Daryl Lynn Ross, Co-founder & Guiding Teacher, True North Insight Meditation

Doing meditation practice in a quiet room by ourselves or with others gives us a way to ground ourselves, find some inner space and learn to not get so hooked by our habitual reactions. Another important dimension of practice is living with mindfulness and compassion in everyday relationships and activities.

As meditation deepens it becomes a way of life: we bring more calm and kindness into our relationships and activities, and the challenging people and moments can be opportunities to see where we are still stuck in old habits.We recognize that everyone and every situation can teach us to become more aware and compassionate. Life itself becomes our practice.

The afternoon retreat will include meditation instruction, sitting and walking meditation, guided practices and a talk and discussion, with opportunity for questions in a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

Everyone is welcome: beginners and more experienced practitioners. Space is limited! This event will be limited to 26 participants.
