Insight Meditation Community of Washington Weekend Retreat
Waking Up in Real Life: Practices for Mind, Body, and Heart
“May We Exist Like The Lotus, At Home In The Muddy Water.” ( Zen Proverb)
When: March 3, 3017 – March 5, 2017
Where: Sevenoaks Retreat Center
How do we bring the expansive qualities of mind, body, and heart that we cultivate on the cushion into the messy and often difficult places–the “muddy water”–in which we find ourselves, and our world? How do we abide in peace, joy and equanimity in the middle of real life?
This silent Vipassana meditation retreat will focus on teachings and practices for mind, body, and heart that are both imminently practical, and deeply sacred. There will be periods of sitting and walking meditation, as well as opportunities for daily yoga/movement.
