Taking Refuge in This Moment
Sponsored by One Dharma Nashville
Saturday, November 12, 8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Please join us in a beautiful rural West Nashville setting for a day of sitting and walking meditation. We will cultivate insight and lovingkindness through awakening our minds to the present moment.
This day long silent retreat will focus on mindfulness meditation. We will train our minds in present time awareness by bringing attention to the breath and sensations in the body, and finding refuge in moment by moment wakefulness. Through this practice we gradually understand the truth of the constantly changing nature of all things, and we learn to respond with compassion and friendliness to all that arises.
Led by meditation teacher Lisa Ernst, the retreat is suitable for both beginning and experienced meditators; it will include sitting and walking meditation, practice instructions, optional private interview and a dharma talk. Please bring a sack lunch. Tea and coffee will be provided as well as refreshments after the retreat. Bring your own meditation cushion if you have one and two blankets or a zabuton. If you don’t have a cushion, we will have a few extras; please let us know if you need one. Chairs are also available.
Cost: $25, plus dana (donation) to the teacher. Please contact email@example.com to confirm your spot and for information on where to send your $25 deposit. The location of this retreat, in west Bellevue, is about 25 minutes from downtown Nashville. Directions and additional information will be emailed to you prior to the retreat.
