RETREATS & SPECIAL EVENTS
BRIDGET ROLENS LEADS SUNDAY MORNING MEDITATION MARCH 6 AT 10:00
AND BRIDGET LEADS ONLINE WEEKEND INSIGHT MEDITATION RETREAT MARCH 18-20
The Dharma of the Senses
Led by Bridget Rolens
Friday March 18-Sunday March 20, 2022
Offered on Zoom
Ledi Sayadaw, one of the great Burmese meditation masters and scholars of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, likened the sense bases [eyes, ears, nose, tongue, body, and mind] to six train stations from which trains travel to various destinations. Either they take us to situations of suffering, they take us to realms of happiness, or to freedom and full awakening. He invites us to consider how all the wholesome and unwholesome actions we do, with their respective karmic consequences, originate at one of the sense doors.
The structure of the weekend will support a continuity of mindfulness while sitting, walking, eating, and moving about throughout the day. Dhamma talks and discussions will provide time to explore the teachings and practices of the Buddha. This retreat is appropriate for both beginning meditators and those with experience.
Dates and Times:
Friday evening 7:00 pm -9:00 pm
Saturday 9:00 am-5:00 pm
Sunday 9:00 am-12:00 noon
