of a day, simply to sit in meditation together, our basic,
transformational practice. It’s a “bare bones” retreat. Someone keeps time, and we sit in our regular rhythm, 25 min. of seated meditation, 5 min. of walking meditation. Lunch is brown bag, and we eat together in silence and have some break time, between noon and 1:00 pm. You are welcome to come for all or part of the day, and are invited to bring a short reading to share at the beginning of one of the meditation periods.
There is no fee for this; a dana bowel will be available to receive your contributions to the ongoing life of the sangha, with deep gratitude.
Nice way to begin a year together, don’t you think?
