Upcoming Daylong Retreat February 2nd

Note: This is for a retreat that has already happened.

Daylong Retreat
The Practice of Meditation: Working with Concentration, Insight, and More
Led By the Show Me Dharma Teachers Collective (teachers will be announced)
Date and Time: Sunday February 2  9:00 am-4:00 pm
Location: Show Me Dharma, 1600 West Broadway, Columbia
Cost: This retreat is offered on a dana (voluntary donation) basis

 

In this retreat we will explore a number of meditation practices that are part of the Theravada Buddhist tradition, including concentration practice, insight practice, and choiceless awareness. Our intention will be to provide practice instructions for each of these. We will also explore the ways in which each of these practices moves us in the direction of wisdom, freedom, kindness, and compassion.

 

This retreat will be held in noble silence. We will have alternating periods of sitting meditation and walking meditation. There will be brief talks by the teachers, as well as opportunities to ask questions. Please consider taking this opportunity to deepen your practice.
The retreat will be held on a Dana basis. We do ask you to bring a sack lunch, which will be eaten in Noble Silence.

REGISTRATION IS FULL.

 

The regular Sunday sit will happen during the retreat. Please be mindful of Noble Silence when you arrive, during the sit and when you leave. Thank you.

[Finished] Introduction to Mindfulness Meditation

Please note this course has completed.

A new Introduction to Mindfulness Meditation class will start Wednesday, January 22 from 6:30pm to 8:30pm and meet every Wednesday for 6 weeks and offered on a Dana (voluntary donation) basis.

Mindfulness meditation, or vipassana, is a 2500 year-old Buddhist practice that can benefit every aspect of your life. Vipassana can help you relax, cope with work and family stress, deeply heal your emotional life and lead you to spiritual freedom.

The class will be taught by Terry Furstenau (tfurstenau@gmail.com). Each class will consist of a talk, meditation practice, and group discussion. This class is taught on a donation basis.
