Beginning with the February, 2017 half-day meditation, the Rime Center will offer a Zen style retreat once every quarter. The practice will consist of Zazen, seated meditation, Kinhin, walking meditation, chanting and Samu, or mindful work. Meditation will be from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm and the facilitators will be Nova Bradfield and Vickie Cumberland. We will follow the practice taught by visiting teacher, Karen Maezen Miller, with a brief instruction at the beginning of the meditation.
Our monthly half-day retreat is offered on the second Saturday of each month. The focus will be upon shamatha meditation and it is a wonderful way to deepen your practice. The retreats will focus on releasing ego clinging and training the mind in compassion through shamatha meditation. Beginners are encouraged to attend, but must first have received meditation instruction. We will be observing noble silence throughout the retreat. Tea and bottled water will be provided.
Date & Time: second Saturday of each month, 9:00 a.m. – noon
