A Day of Mindfulness

Saturday June 3

10 am - 4 pm

Guided by Laura Liss

Qi Gong with Devin Wallace

The intention for the day is to pause in the midst of our lives to allow for the experience of being with whatever is arising and passing in awareness, with the attitudes of kindness and curiosity. 

We'll move through lightly guided practices including sitting meditation, metta and qi gong as well as unguided practices such as walking meditation and mindful eating.

All interested practitioners are welcome and no prior experience is necessary.

This retreat will be held in person at the White Heron Sangha Meditation Center.

Pack a lunch for mindful eating practice. A refrigerator is available.

Registration for this retreat is required and space is limited. There is no fee and dana will be gratefully accepted.
