Program Details


December 29 / 9:00 AM - December 29 / 4:00 PM

A Nyinthun is a full-day group meditation practice, a chance to deepen one's own practice.  The day will begin and end with english-language Buddhist chants, include periods of sitting and walking meditation, tonglen and contemplation.  Functional silence will be observed during the entire Nyinthun.

We encourage you to lean into your meditation practice and attend the full Nyinthun.  If you cannot, please join us when you can. Time your arrival/departure for the top of the hour during walking meditation so that there is as little disruption as possible.


9-12:  Opening chants and meditation

12-1 : Mid-day meal and light work period

1-4:  Meditation and closing chants
