Untangling the Knots: A One-Day (or half-day) Silent Meditation Retreat

 

Suitable for both beginning and experienced meditation students, this silent meditation retreat includes guided meditation periods, silent sitting and walking meditation,
                                        dharma talk in the afternoon, and question-and-answer session.

When: Saturday, April 14 from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm 
Where: Third Haven Friends Meeting House, 405 South Washington St , Easton , MD

What: This day of practice will include direction in mindfulness of the breath, body, emotions and thoughts as a way of becoming aware of our deeply ingrained patterns of heart and mind, i.e., obsessive patterns, perfectionism and self-judgment to name a few. These patterns have been repeated so often in our lives that they have been called “karmic knots”. Through the practice of insight meditation and compassion, it is possible to work with them and come to a place of joy and freedom.
