We will spend this day in silent practice. The day will include introductory instructions for sitting and walking meditation in the morning followed by alternating sitting and walking practice including some qigong. There will be a short talk before lunch and a dharma talk at the end of the day. If you come for a partial day and arrive during a sitting period, please enter quietly and join us. Most of the day will be held in silence in order to cultivate a still and quiet mind; opportunities for practice discussions will be provided.

This day is freely offered to all. Donations are welcome to support future offerings. Please bring a vegetarian potluck dish to share for lunch, if you would like. Dress in loose, warm, comfortable clothing. For the sake of those who may have sensitivities or allergies, please do not wear scented or perfumed products. If you have a meditation cushion, please bring it. Chairs will be available. Suitable for beginning and all levels of practitioners.
