December 30 - January 2  2016-17 Meditation / Mindfulness Retreat (New Years Eve Weekend)
This retreat will focus on the views of presence, and an understanding of the hindrances to personal happiness and how these topics relate to the practice of Buddhist insight meditation and Mindfulness.
"When we embrace and allow all areas of our experience with awareness, painful patterns in body and mind begin to dissolve. Gently, we learn how to accept and let go of judgment and reactivity within ourselves. As we practice the art of meditation, and as we non-judjmentaly view and understands between us and the stillness and joy, clarity begins to shine through."
This silent retreat will include sitting and walking meditation practices, collage work, interviews, periods for questions and answers, and dharma talks. Shane Wilson is an ordained Buddhist minister and a former Theravada monk. He has been teaching and leading retreats and workshops for over 15 years. He has practiced and worked with western and Asian teachers from a variety of traditions in the US, China, and Thailand.
