With Linda Modaro and Wendy Liepman
San Luis Obispo, CA – White Heron Sangha
During this one-day, non-residential retreat we will explore the Buddhist teachings in meditation practice.
“Just as the great ocean has one taste, the taste of salt, so also this teaching and discipline has one taste, the taste of liberation.”
Have you have experienced a taste of liberation; moments when you were not burdened with reactivity, longing or irritation?
Classical Buddhist texts list seven factors that can lead to liberation: mindfulness, investigation, energy, joy, relaxation, concentration and equanimity. These seven factors can develop in all meditation practices, but are you aware of how they show up in your practice? Are you able to integrate them into your life? If you tend to jump right back into your day after meditating, you may be missing a fruitful time to recognize them.
Being together with dharma friends on this one-day retreat, you will have the opportunity to pause and reflect after meditating. You may choose to share your reflections within a small group and in conversation with the teachers.
Reflective Meditation is compatible with most forms of meditation and you may do the practice of your choice (or switch between practices). If you are new to meditation, we suggest sitting comfortably in silence, with kind attention to your bodymind as it is.
White Heron Sangha offers these retreats on donation basis.
