Awakening to Presence
12 South Dharma Center
Sunday, August 26, 9:30 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Led by Lisa Ernst
Please join us for a late summer day of sitting and walking meditation at the 12 South Dharma Center. We will cultivate insight and lovingkindness through awakening our hearts to the present moment.
Led by meditation teacher Lisa Ernst, this 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, cultivating awareness of the pleasant and unpleasant states that arise. 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.
This retreat is suitable for both beginning and experienced meditators; it will include sitting and walking meditation, practice instructions, and a dharma talk. Please bring a sack lunch. Refreshments will be provided at the end of the retreat.
Cost: $35, plus dana (donation) to the teacher. A deposit of $35 will reserve your space and is due by Monday, August 20. You may bring your deposit to the center during one of our meditation sessions, or mail a check made out to One Dharma Nashville to: 12South Dharma Center c/o One Dharma Nashville, 2301 12th Ave. South, Suite 202, Nashville, TN 37204. Please include your email address. Directions and additional information will be emailed prior to the retreat. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
