Meditation & Mindfulness Retreat
Labor Day - Weekend - Payson Arizona
Silent Mindfulness & Meditation Retreat - Payson Arizona
This is a wonderful opportunity to experience and enjoy the peacefulness of nature as it blends with the stillness of mind that has been a trade mark of these retreats. A weekend of silence and peace has served many over the past years. Join us this new year's weekend. Facilitated by Shane Wilson.
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.
"In a retreat such as this we learn how to accept and let go of judgment and reactivity within ourselves as we practice the art of meditation, as we do so we learn to non-judgmentally view and understand what comes between us and being complete in the world. Then stillness, joy, and clarity begins to shine through. In addition, when we allow all areas of experience and watch with awareness, conditioned painful patterns of mind and body fall away. This is often the result of being on retreat."
This silent retreat will include sitting and walking meditation practices, collage work, interviews, periods for questions and answers, and dharma talks.
