Offering Mindfulness Meditation
in the context of the Buddha’s teachings
in a welcoming community
Saturday, October 21, 2017
Join ICD Founding Teacher, Larry Yang for this daylong retreat. Building community can seem like a worthy purpose, a high aspiration, even a wholesome ideal. But the practices of Mindfulness and Lovingkindness invite us into experiencing more than that. The Compassion and Wisdom of Mindfulness invites us into the experience that Community is not just possible, but that it is necessary for our spiritual growth and path…. and that it is, sometimes, a challenging thing to accomplish.
Building community is not a luxury; it is not a hobby; it is a necessity in the intensities of this current world. Please come with the intention to really explore what Community feels like and to experience both how Community holds us together to grow and love, and also how it can push us beyond who we think we are as individuals and as groups, in the beauty of our human condition.
Beginning and experienced meditators are welcomed. Please bring a bag lunch, if you can. There will be a book signing and purchase opportunity for Larry’s new book Awakening Together at the end of the daylong.
