Remembering and Returning: Mindfulness and Embodiment

2020-01-18 9:30 am - 4:30 pm

A meditation retreat with Margo McLoughlin.

This retreat is the third in a series of five workshops exploring the Five Spiritual Faculties: faith, energy, mindfulness, concentration, and wisdom. Each of us has the potential to awaken and develop these beautiful qualities of mind and heart.

In this retreat, we’ll draw on the Buddha’s famous discourse, the Discourse on the Four Foundations of Mindfulness, with a particular emphasis on the first of these foundations–mindfulness of the body. The Buddha’s teachings encourage us to see the great potential for insight in fearlessly meeting our experience of embodiment, with all the pleasure and pain that implies. Over the course of this retreat, Margo will also share stories of the early Buddhist nuns, whose lives demonstrate the many ways that we learn and grow by accepting and caring for this fragile human form.

Details: 
Friday, January 17 | 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM

Investment:
$25.00 | There will be an opportunity to practice dana (generosity) for the teachings.
