You are invited to join your fellow practitioners for an afternoon of contemplation. In the midst of the holiday season, to stop all activities and to meditate together in the peaceful and beautiful environment of CIMC can be a radical choice. Engaging in the simple forms of sitting and walking meditation, we step out from under the general business in the world around us and find a way to sustain our practice come what may. Other than instructions and verbal encouragement, we will be in silence throughout the afternoon, calming our minds, brightening our hearts and cultivating wise and kind intentions.
At the end of the retreat we will gather for tea and light refreshments. Please feel free to contribute a dessert if you'd like.
