Meditation Practice Day Retreat — relax into your vitality
Saturday February 5, 10am-4pm | on-site at Aryaloka or on Zoom
A day retreat is a great way to explore a longer period of practice if you’re new to meditation and an excellent opportunity for more experienced practitioners to touch some depth in the midst of life’s activity.
This day will combine periods of meditation, teaching and discussion with the intent of coming into connection with our depths and replenishing ourselves in the natural vitality that arises in quiet stillness.
A vegan lunch and refreshments are included. We have plenty of meditation cushions and chairs, but feel free to bring your own gear if desirable. We suggest wearing comfortable clothing, including warm socks or indoor shoes/slippers. Feel free to bring a notebook and pen if you benefit from taking notes.
This retreat is suitable for anyone who has taken at least one of our introductory courses, and for more experienced meditators. Although we will not be teaching meditation, there will be a few sessions with some helpful prompts.
Led by Dh Amala and Dh Suddhayu. Read their bios here.
