Sunday Sitting: Nyinthun Daylong Meditation Retreat

with Steve Hoskins & Jesse Brunette
March 30 / 9:00 AM - March 30 / 4:30 PM

Please join us for an extended period of practice in the company of fellow practitioners.  We will start with our regular sitting practice from 9 AM to 10:30 AM (tea).  Extended sitting will resume at 10:45 AM.

During the day we will examine our meditation practice and engage in several practice sessions, short talks, discussion and readings on the topic of the day, "Loving Kindness and Compassion Practice" and "The Joy of Boredom."

Spending time on the cushion and contemplating the instructions is the best way to move our practice and insight along the path of meditation and connect with our inherent basic goodness.

Initial meditation instruction will be available at the beginning of the Public Sitting.
